CholesterolIncorrect: Cholesterol is a fat made by every animal cell on planet, part of every cell membrane, allows animals to move &has nothing to do with cardiovascular disease. The correct issues are low density lipoproteins &high density lipoproteins, complex proteins which transport all fat molecules around our body in the water outside cells, get an NMR lipoprotein test, then focus on correct issues. Good luck.
