How will the bad cholesterol clogged in arteries be removed?

What Are Arteries?

Arteries are tubes that carry oxygen-rich blood from your heart to the rest of your body.

Meet Cholesterol

Cholesterol is a waxy substance in our blood. We need some, but too much can be a problem.

The Clog Begins

Bad cholesterol can stick to artery walls, forming a sticky gunk called plaque.

As plaque builds up, it makes it hard for blood to flow. This can lead to heart problems.

Plaque Problems

Doctors can check for clogged arteries with special tests like heart scans.

How We Find It

Eating Right

Eating foods low in bad cholesterol helps. Think fruits, veggies, and whole grains!

Stay Active

Being active makes your heart strong and helps keep arteries clear.

Medicine Helps

Sometimes, doctors prescribe medicine to help reduce cholesterol.

Procedures

In serious cases, doctors might need to do a procedure to remove the plaque.

Regular check-ups with your doctor are important to keep your arteries clear.
