If your doctor wants you to lower your cholesterol numbers, he or she will likely make recommendations geared toward helping you make healthier lifestyle choices around diet and exercise, and may also consider a medication. These strategies can help lower your bad cholesterol (LDL) number.
Address high cholesterol by working with your healthcare team to build a plan that includes a low-cholesterol diet, exercise, and possibly medication.
Discuss your treatment plan and make sure you’re on the same page as your healthcare team about your goals and next steps.
For more information, talk with your healthcare provider.
