Preventing and Controlling Cholesterol Levels
Maintaining healthy cholesterol levels is important, as it’s a primary risk factor for heart disease, the leading cause of death in the U.S.
While it’s important to have all cholesterol levels at a healthy mark, maintaining an appropriate HDL is the most critical. Genetics and lifestyle factors are the main triggers for high cholesterol. Because genetics can’t be controlled, ensuring your lifestyle is cholesterol-friendly is critical for avoiding high cholesterol.
