Hpercholesterolemia, or what's more commonly known as high cholesterol, is a medical condition characterized by high levels of cholesterol in a person's bloodstream. Cholesterol is needed by the body to perform metabolic functions.
If you don't get enough cholesterol, metabolic functions will occur more slowly, which can lead to weight gain, fatigue and a myriad of other problems. But too much cholesterol is also concerning, as it increases the risk of heart disease.

Statistics show that about 34 million Americans suffer from high cholesterol. When there's too much cholesterol in the blood -- a thick, waxy substance -- it restricts the speed at which blood flows through the arteries.
In turn, people who suffer from high cholesterol are more likely to experience stroke or heart attack than their counterparts with normal cholesterol levels.
The problem is that many people don't even know that they high cholesterol. Unlike with blood pressure, there's no easy way for individuals to check their cholesterol levels.
Instead, they must visit a doctor or physician to have their blood tested. Cholesterol testing, also known as cholesterol screening, involves taking a patient's blood sample and analyzing it for cholesterol.
It's a common testing solution that's used to diagnose high cholesterol.
The American Heart Association (AHA) actually recommends that adults over the age of 20 have their cholesterol levels tested every four to six years. Testing is typically performed after a 12-hour period of fasting so that cholesterol introduced by food doesn't cause false negatives.
