It’s a common myth that people think they’d be able to spot high cholesterol due to changes in their health said Mrs Bond.

“Cholesterol can change quite quickly, which is why exercise and eating healthy should be embedded into your everyday routine.
“But we’re talking a few weeks, rather than days and the odd meal or day where you eat a bit more than usual won’t make a difference to your cholesterol levels in the long run, but if your healthy eating and exercise habits have totally gone out the window during the lockdown, this could have a big impact on your cholesterol and your weight.”
