Q:

How can I lower my cholesterol?

A:

Medications are often prescribed to help lower LDL (bad) cholesterol levels in high-risk people. These drugs (called statins) have been shown to lower risk of cardiovascular events (heart attack, stroke, death) by approximately 30% over a 5-year period. Certain lifestyle measures, including diet and activity, can also positively impact bad cholesterol levels in the blood.
