Dr. Albert Pizzo
Family Medicine 60 years experience
High cholesterol: High cholesterol usually refers to the amount of cholesterol found in a persons blood, and can be measured by laboratory tests. When cholesterol measurement is above the normal range for that individual then it is generally called high cholesterol. Interpretation of the meaning of high levels in the blood requires a physician consultation and other testing to determine any health risk.
