Lowering Cholesteral

Were you looking for information about Lowering Cholesterol? Lowering cholesteral is a common misspelling of lowering cholesterol.
 
If you have high cholesterol, and nothing is done to lower it, you will be at a greater risk of serious medical problems later, such as a heart attack or stroke. The main goal of high cholesterol treatment is to lower your low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels enough to reduce your risk of developing heart disease or having a heart attack. The higher your risk, the greater the chance you will need treatment with a medication (typically a statin) and the higher the dosage you will need.
 
Lowering cholesterol begins with lifestyle changes, such as losing weight and changing your diet. If lifestyle changes alone are not successful, medication such as statins, bile acid sequestrants, and cholesterol absorption inhibitors may be prescribed.
