According to a three-year study held by the University of Copenhagen, cholesterol levels tend to be 20% higher in January than in June.
They found among 25,764 participants that their average cholesterol level was 197mg/dL in June, while 240mg/dL in January. The average LDL (bad cholesterol) was 108mg/dL in June, and 143mg/dL in January.
The rise in cholesterol level is likely to be influenced by the fatty foods consumed during the Christmas holidays and lack of exercise!
Why don’t we make January the month to manage our cholesterol levels from now on?
