Lowering high cholesterol

Your family tree vs. food

You know, anyone can have high cholesterol — even if you are active or thin, young or old. In fact 1 in 5 people already does. Even if you eat right and exercise, your cholesterol levels might still be high. That’s why many doctors today are prescribing medication in addition to diet and exercise for some people as part of their treatment plan to help lower high cholesterol. It’s important that you understand your treatment options and how you can effectively lower your cholesterol. final_info_mov4
