What causes high blood cholesterol?
The most common cause of high blood cholesterol levels in people is eating too much fat, especially saturated fat. However, some people have high blood cholesterol levels even though they have a healthy diet.

Some people have high cholesterol levels as a result of an underactive thyroid gland, long-term kidney problems, or having too much alcohol. Also, about 1 in 500 people have high cholesterol levels because of the inherited condition familial hyperlipidaemia.
