Cholesterol is a high molecular weight lipid found exclusively in animals. It is synthesized primarily in the liver and gut, and is released from those sites into the circulatory system. Serum cholesterol concentrations are affected by numerous factors, including hepatic and endocrine diseases, hereditary factors, and diet. Hypercholesterolemia is associated with increased risk of developing atherosclerosis.
