A report released by Cardi Health, a data-powered cardiovascular health management company, has found that high cholesterol is directly linked with high blood pressure.

In a survey of nearly 94,571 people, 36,45% of respondents said they have high cholesterol and high blood pressure. 35,23% mentioned having only high blood pressure, 16.10% were suffering from high cholesterol, and 12,23% didn’t have any of these conditions yet, but wanted to focus on prevention.

“We can now affirm that the majority of our patients with cardiovascular diseases have elevated blood cholesterol levels as well. The number of such patients in Europe and the United States is growing every year, the average age is younger, and the incidence of life-threatening episodes is increasing.” – said Robertas Pranevicius, MD, Interventional Cardiologist at Cardi Health.

Cholesterol is a molecule found in all cells in the body. It is an important part of many of the body’s processes, including producing hormones, making vitamin D, and even digesting food. Cholesterol is naturally produced in the liver but is also added to the body or maintained by diet.

When the body has too much cholesterol, it can bind to other molecules, including calcium, to form plaque – a thick, hard substance that can stick to the walls of the arteries, rendering them less flexible than normal. This condition is referred to as “atherosclerosis” and is directly correlated with high blood pressure.

Over time, the strain on the heart from high blood pressure can lead to cardiovascular diseases, such as coronary artery disease, heart attack, or stroke.

While many people are screened for these conditions every year, patients experiencing these conditions should collect data about their health more frequently. Devices such as the blood pressure monitor can help users actively monitor their blood pressure and cholesterol at their convenience.

To prevent and manage these conditions, the patient must lead a healthy lifestyle, a doctor may prescribe medication to control cholesterol and blood pressure.
