Cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like substance that occurs naturally in all parts of the body. Your body needs some cholesterol to work properly.

Plaque can narrow your arteries or even block them. Increased cholesterol in blood is called hypercholesterolaemia.
Hypothyroidism results from deficient production of thyroid hormone by the thyroid gland.

No matter what the cause, symptoms such as low energy, fatigue, cold hands and feet, muscle pain, depression and cognitive deficits are common.
