The relationship between cholesterol and your overall health can sound like a Facebook status: It’s complicated.

 

That said, the American Heart Association says too much could cause health problems down the road. (High cholesterol is often treated with cholesterol-lowering medications like statins, which can cost payers anywhere from $10 to almost $800 for one prescription fill depending on the type of statin and whether it’s a brand-name or generic drug.)

 

Along with diet and exercise, your age, weight, and heredity contribute to your overall blood cholesterol level.

 

See how much you know about cholesterol. Take this five-question quiz, and tell us below how you scored.
