CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - If you don't keep good track of your cholesterol, new problems can develop, like atherosclerosis.
Dr. David Boyd explains that elevated lipids can lead to deposits of cholesterol on the inside of your arteries. Over time, the narrowing of the diameter of those arteries can lead to health issues.
Left unchecked high lipids can lead to heart attack and stroke.
See your physician to discuss having a fasting lipid panel checked and do your part to protect your heart.
