In brief: Condition

A symptom is something that you feel, such as pain, fatigue or anxiety.
One can not tell if one has high cholesterol without a test (though high cholesterol may contribute to developing conditions that result in symptoms), so it is a condition. However, high cholesterol may not be as big a problem as most docs believe. See http://www.Spacedoc.Com/cholesterol_articles and my comment for more info.
