Cholesterol Management

If high cholesterol goes untreated, it could put you at greater risk for serious medical problems later on, such as heart disease, a heart attack, or a stroke. Therefore, it's important to make sure you are managing your cholesterol.
 
How is this done? In most cases, people start with making dietary changes, losing weight, and exercising. If these changes do not help to lower your cholesterol levels, your healthcare provider may recommend medications, such as statins, fibrates, or nicotinic acid. If you do not lower your low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol after three months on a single drug, a second medicine may be necessary.
