Treating Cholesterol

All humans have a specific form of fats called lipids flowing through their bloodstream. These wax-like substances are more commonly recognized as cholesterol. Having healthy levels of cholesterol present in our systems is critical in maintaining a properly functioning body, but having too much cholesterol can end up posing several health risks. When the body is housing high levels of cholesterol, it ends up becoming clogged in our arterial units, causing hardening of the arteries.

Most patients discover their high cholesterol levels when their low-density lipoproteins (LDL) reading comes back too high. At this point, the doctor typically diagnosis the patient with hypercholesterolemia, which is the medical terminology for high cholesterol. While facing a diagnosis of hypercholesterolemia is understandably alarming, there are many treatment routes to take that are safe and effectual.
