The condition of high blood pressure is also called hypertension. Hypertension can be established when the condition of systolic blood pressure exceeds 130 mmHg or diastolic blood pressure exceeds 80 mmHg. When blood pressure is high, this indicates an increase in heart work to pump blood throughout the body. The body needs blood and oxygen to function properly and maintain activity.
Hypercholesterolemia is a condition characterized by an increase in cholesterol levels in the blood. Cholesterol in the blood is transported by protein, we can generally check it by examining Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL) and High Density Lipoprotein (HDL). In addition, in cholesterol examination can also be measured levels of triglycerides and total cholesterol. Some parameters that can be used for this are:
