One of the most common medical conditions that Avanti Travel Insurance covers is high cholesterol, which is why we specialise in cholesterol travel insurance policies. Cholesterol is a vital fatty substance found in some foods and is also produced by the liver.
High levels of cholesterol can lead to blocked or narrowed arteries, which can cause more serious conditions such as a heart attack or a stroke. To keep your cholesterol levels healthy, the most important advice is to keep a well-balanced diet low in saturated fats. Other advice includes regular exercise and stopping smoking. If levels remain high, your doctor may prescribe medication such as statins if you are healthy enough.
Avanti believes that having high cholesterol should not be a barrier to travelling, you should just plan ahead! Always pack a water bottle and nutritious low-fat snacks to avoid the cookies and doughnuts on the other side of airport security. If you are on cholesterol-lowering medication, remember to get a letter from your doctor and some extra tablets in case you are delayed.
Avanti provides high cholesterol travel insurance that is tailored around your individual medical background. As with high blood pressure, we are able to provide travel insurance for high cholesterol to thousands of our customers free of charge if you call our office, subject to terms and conditions, thus keeping the policy low-cost whilst not compromising on the quality.
