High Cholesterol

Synexus regularly conduct clinical studies in high cholesterol and cardiovascular diseases.

Cholesterol is made up of ‘good’ lipoprotein (HDL-C) and ‘bad’ lipoproteins (LDL-C). Keeping them in balance is important for your heart health. Having a higher level of bad cholesterol (LDL-C) can lead to narrowing of the arteries, heart attack, stroke, mini-stroke (TIA).
