• Kinetic aspects of cholesterol dynamics are described, with flux from the gut, to the liver, to the tissues, and back to the liver and gut, with a discussion of modifying mechanisms, synthesis, and transport. Overproduction of cholesterol, and bile acid and cholesterol malabsorption, are related to clinical problems.
