High Colesterol Risk Factors

High blood pressure, pre-diabetes, obesity, sedentary lifestyle, being overweight, family history and age are high cholesterol risk factors.

“Family history and age are non-modifiable risks that have an incredible impact, because as we get older or we have a bad family history, it becomes even more important to pay attention to the modifiable risks like high cholesterol, high blood sugar and high blood pressure,” says Dr. Ted Feldman, Medical Director of Prevention and Community Health with Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute.
