High cholesterol treatment
If your cholesterol levels are higher than normal, talk with your physician on the medical staff about steps you can take to lower your levels. Steps may include lifestyle changes like diet, physical activity, quitting smoking and medication.
Treatment plans for patients will be determined by their care team based on age, medical history, type and stage of high cholesterol and personal preferences. High cholesterol treatment options may include:
- Lifestyle changes—eat heart-healthy foods, maintain a healthy weight, exercise, stop smoking, limit alcohol and control stress
- Clinical trials (when appropriate)
