Prevention & Treatment

High Cholesterol Research StudyTake responsibility for managing your cholesterol levels. Whether you have been prescribed medication or advised to make diet and lifestyle changes to help manage your cholesterol, carefully follow your doctor’s recommendations.

Lifestyle Changes

Take action on the factors that you can control by:

  • Manage your diet and eat heart-healthy
  • Get physical with aerobic physical exercise and moderate muscle strengthening activities.
  • Avoid tobacco smoke.
  • Eat Right for Lower Cholesterol

Avoid or limit processed meats such as sausage, bologna, salami and hotdogs. They are high in calories and saturated fats. Use a rack when broiling, roasting or baking to drain off fat. Try to eat fish twice per week and when eating poultry stick with chicken and turkey instead of duck and goose, and stick to the white meat when you can. Try eating more meals featuring fruits and vegetables and beans. Also low sodium soups and stews and spaghetti with meat for flavor rather than a main ingredient. Make vegetables even tastier by adding herbs and spices. There are some excellent suggestions on the American Heart Association website.

Exercising for Health

Exercise can reduce cholesterol. Be sure and check with your doctor first and with his OK, “set your goal to 30 minutes of exercise per day”.

  • Take a brisk walk during your lunch hour
  • Ride a bike
  • Swimming is excellent
  • Get out there and play your favorite sport
  • Lose Weight

Even losing 5 to 10 percent of your body weight can help to reduce cholesterol levels. If you’re bored or frustrated take a walk, “Don’t eat”. Try eating carrot sticks instead of potato chips while watching that favorite football team. Enjoy your meal, don’t devour it. Follow the steps above and look and feel healthier.
