High cholesterol: How your sleep could affect 'bad' cholesterol levels – what to avoid

Date:


“Snoring was significantly associated with low high-density lipoprotein cholesterol level, being married, increased stress at work and at home, less than 30 minutes of exercise per day, less than five servings of fruits and vegetables per day, and being overweight/obese.”

The study concludes: “Sleeping less than six hours per night was associated with several traditional and psychosocial cardiovascular disease risk factors, and snoring was associated with low high-density lipoprotein cholesterol level, likely mediated through overweight/obesity.

“These data may have significance for health care providers to identify individuals who may be at increased cardiovascular disease risk based on sleep habits.”

As a general rule, a healthy level of total cholesterol in the blood is five or less millimoles per litre (mmol/l).
