Altace (Ramipril)

Weight is not always related to cholesterol level. Some people have high cholesterol levels even though they are not overweight. However, any gain in weight is likely to be associated with a rise in cholesterol. Weight may also rise on a high-energy carbohydrate diet. When you stop smoking, you will usually gain weight, particularly if you start to eat snacks and nibble between meals to compensate for the lost comfort of a cigarette. An increase in weight results in a higher cholesterol level, and it also raises the level of your blood triglycerides. Triglycerides are less important as a risk factor than total cholesterol and LDL levels, but they are sometimes associated with low HDL levels and hence are indirectly a risk factor. Your weight depends both on the number of calories you take in as food, and on the number of calories you burn up during normal living. Thus, your weight may be controlled by restricting the intake of calories and also by being physically active.
A combination of exercise and changed diet is generally the best method. Lowering your weight will have a good effect on the cholesterol and other lipid levels; it also tends to result in lower blood pressure, a greater sense of well-being and greater physical capacity. Being physically active causes you to lose fat rather than muscle, so physical activity helps you to lose the right sort of weight.
