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 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 a clean diet rich in vegetables and whole grains, 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 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.

In addition to medication, your doctor may recommend the following as part of a prevention and treatment plan for high cholesterol. Note that you should always defer to your doctor before beginning any treatment plan.
