High cholesterol and exercise
Getting fit isn't just good for your waistline. It could also help you to cope better with any medical problems you are experiencing.
The good news is that incorporating exercise into your life is easier than you might think. There are several specific, simple exercises you can do, which will help you stay on top of your condition. It is important to consult a doctor or healthcare professional before making any changes to your exercise routine.
Doing regular exercise is an excellent way to manage your cholesterol and maintain a healthy heart.
Enjoying some form of physical activity for about half an hour, five times a week can boost the production of 'good' HDL cholesterol, which helps to reduce 'bad' LDL cholesterol from your blood. And the good news is that this doesn't mean running a marathon. Even moderate activity can really benefit your health.
You should always consult your doctor or your practice nurse, if you've never exercised before, or have any concerns.
