when should you be worried? Here is the answer



One of the most common pathologies in Italy is hypercholesterolemia, also called hypercholesterolemia. This phenomenon affects many individuals, who are united not by the same age, but by the type of diet. To be precise, hypercholesterolemia can even cause in certain subjects increases, at least exponential, of the level of cholesterol circulating in the blood, therefore, to maintain these levels under control, subjects suffering from hypercholesterolemia are forced, even to reluctantly, to follow a special diet specific to the case.
