In this morning, I received an email from one of my readers. She told me that her cholesterol level has gone up recently. She suspects her work stress does increase the cholesterol level. This is because recently she has to work until midnight to finish up the project for about two months. Hence, she’d like to know does stress at work cause high cholesterol?
Stress Can Cause High Cholesterol & Increase Body Fat
Cholesterol is a body fat content which is essentially good for the body if the dose is right, but there are also bad cholesterol called low-density lipoprotein (LDL) in the blood. If LDL is high, it would endanger health. As you know, when the cholesterol level gone up, it can be the accumulation of fat in the arterial wall and can lead to heart disease or stroke.
During stress, two hormones, cortisol and adrenaline are generated from the hypothalamus, a gland near the brain. These two hormones act as stimuli to release more energy and increase blood flow to the brain. Besides that, cortisol produces more insulin to body with instant energy to face the stress situation. As I mentioned in my previous posts, with the excess of sugar levels, the excess sugar eventually converted to fatty acids and cholesterol. Moreover, work stress can push people toward unhealthy eating habits and lifestyle. These factors contribute to high cholesterol levels too.
