Cholesterol Not Associated with Elderly Deaths
A professor from the University of South Florida and a group of experts have discovered that elderly people with high low-density lipoprotein (LDL) live longer than their counterparts, those with low levels of such cholesterol.
Although several previous studies have already linked high bad cholesterol to cardiovascular illnesses, in the mentioned research, they have found that there may be an inverse relationship between cardiovascular deaths and LDL-C or even no association at all. They also point out how high cholesterol may even protect against other elderly medical conditions such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Other researches have also shown high LDL-C as a form of protection against infectious diseases and cancer.
Should these studies’ findings be true, it is still imperative that we provide the best health care to the elderly. One of these means is by offering them home care services. Through this, our beloved elders can get excellent care from home which they deserve.
