How to Maintain Good Cholesterol Levels


Cholesterol is one of the many lifestyle diseases that affect millions of American seniors daily. As a provider of home care in Los Angeles, California, that has been in service for years, we’ve helped many seniors and individuals with special needs, ensuring they maintain healthy cholesterol levels.

Cholesterol is the waxy substance the body needs to function properly. It’s the building block for all of the body’s cells and helps the liver make the required amino acids to process fat.

There are two types of cholesterol: low-density lipoproteins (LDL) and high-density lipoproteins (HDL). LDL is called the “bad” cholesterol, as it can increase a person’s risk for heart disease. HDL is called the “good” cholesterol and consequently lowers your risk of developing heart disease.

High-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol concentrations have been shown to increase with regular endurance exercise and, therefore, can contribute to a lower risk of coronary heart disease in physically active individuals compared with sedentary subjects.

Eating heart-healthy salmon and avocado can also increase your good cholesterol. The foods you should avoid are foods containing saturated fats and trans fats. Fried foods are rich in saturated fat, which increases your LDL and decreases your HDL. With that, if you have a caregiver at home that provides in-home assistance, they should prepare heart-healthy meals that provide you with good cholesterol.

Do you need help maintaining good cholesterol levels as you age gracefully at home? Absolutely in Homecare Services provides a wide range of homecare services, which include meal preparation as part of our care plans.

We also provide companionship in California. Get in touch with us today to know more.
