Travelling with high cholesterol
As with all medical conditions it is important to plan ahead when travelling. Pack a bottle of water and some healthy snacks to avoid the many unhealthy alternatives when travelling. Also try to stay active during your trip as well as when you get there; take a walk around the airport or stretch your legs on the plane, train or ship.
If you take cholesterol-lowering medication, when travelling, always ensure you have a doctor’s letter and more than the required amount of medication for the duration of your trip in case of unexpected delays.
What is cholesterol?
Cholesterol is a fatty substance found in your blood. This substance, known as a lipid is vital for the body to function normally and is made by the liver, although can be found in some foods.
Having excess cholesterol in your blood does not cause any symptoms but can have a negative effect on your health, increasing the risk of a heart attack, stroke, TIA or the narrowing of the arteries.
