      About high cholesterol

      Back to the top

      Cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like substance found in your body. There are three primary types of cholesterol: HDL (high-density lipoprotein) is sometimes referred to as “good cholesterol” because it carries cholesterol back to your liver, which then removes it from your body. LDL (low-density lipoprotein) and VLDL (very low-density lipoprotein) are often referred to as “bad cholesterol” because they both lead to a buildup of plaque in your arteries.

      Cholesterol is important. Your body needs cholesterol to make hormones, produce vitamin D, and to make healthy cells. However, your body generally makes all the cholesterol it needs, and excess cholesterol in your blood may join with other substances to form plaque. This plaque sticks to the walls of your arteries and can lead to an array of serious health conditions, such as coronary artery disease, blood clots, chest angina, heart attack, stroke, and more.

      Common Medication
      Treatment Options

      Healthy lifestyle changes such as eating healthy and getting enough exercise are foundational in lowering high cholesterol, and often these will be enough. Sometimes these changes won’t yield the desired results, however, and your doctor may recommend you take medication, as well.

      There are many types of medication and several possible combinations available to treat high cholesterol. The prescription you receive will depend on your personal risk factors, your age, your health, and other variables. Below you will find a list of commonly prescribed medications to help you and your doctor discuss a treatment plan that is right for you.
