High cholesterol is an issue typically connected with obesity. This means that if you are overweight, you are more at risk of having high cholesterol and other such problems with your cardiovascular health. High cholesterol itself can impact your chances of coronary heart disease and stroke.
What Exactly is Meant by ‘High Cholesterol’?
Cholesterol is a fatty substance and high cholesterol is caused when too much of that fatty substance is found in the blood. Too much cholesterol can block your blood vessels and arteries (this process is called atherosclerosis). It is therefor imperative that we take steps to prevent or reverse the build-up of cholesterol in the blood. How do we do this? If you are currently overweight / obese, your first step would be to address that. Losing weight can be tough, but you don’t need to do it alone or without clear direction. At Allure Weightloss, we’ve helped countless individuals take advantage of our celebrated programmes.
Gastric Balloon Programmes
Gastric balloons are a non-surgical weight loss tool available to those with a BMI over 27 for the Allurion Balloon and over 30 for the Orbera 365. Depending on the model you choose and your compliance with the Allure Weightloss programme overall, patients typically experience an average total body weight loss of between 10 and 18%.
Bariatric surgeries such as the gastric sleeve and gastric bypass are also great ways to lose weight and thus tackle high cholesterol. The sleeve and bypass are available at three of our clinics in England. These widely successful treatments are offered to patients with a BMI of 35 or over if they have no existing contraindications.
