Colestid Uses

Colestid Uses: One Part of Treatment

Lowering cholesterol typically begins with lifestyle modifications. This includes a diet that is low in cholesterol (see Low Cholesterol Diet) and saturated fats, limited alcohol use, weight loss, and exercise. If lifestyle changes alone do not lower cholesterol levels enough, certain medications, such as Colestid, may be necessary.
Since Colestid can lower both total and LDL cholesterol levels, a person can decrease his or her risk of developing certain health problems in the future by taking it.
