EAS Publication:

Does the festive season lead to a period of hypercholesterolemia in the new year?

Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are the leading cause of death around the world. The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimated 17.9 million deaths are due to CVD. Most CVDs are preventable by following a healthy diet and lifestyle. The importance of diet and lifestyle is also emphasised in the EAS/ESC guidelines for the management of dyslipidaemias and for CVD prevention in clinical practice.
A Danish study found that celebrating Christmas is associated with higher levels of both total and LDL cholesterol. Additionally, the festive season is also linked to a higher risk of hypercholesterolemia.
