Chronic Conditions


High cholesterol is when you have too much of a fatty substance called cholesterol in your blood.

It's mainly caused by eating fatty food, not exercising enough, being overweight, smoking, and drinking alcohol. It can also run in families.

Too much cholesterol can block your blood vessels and increase your chances of having heart problems or a stroke.

At Kena Health, we can advise on lifestyle modifications and diet. We can also refer for further investigations and prescribe treatment.
