Reducing Cholesterol Risk

Here are a few guidelines to help you to reduce the risk of high cholesterol levels.
  • Have a Lipoprotein Profile conducted while fasting to determine what your Total, LDL, and HDL cholesterol levels are.
  • Use an ATP (Adult treatment panel) III Assessment Tool to calculate your risk for heart disease.
  • Discuss your overall risk with your doctor. He or she will be able to provide you with a solid plan of reducing or eliminating any risks.
  • Stay away from food made with saturated fats and look for unsaturated or vegetable oils instead.
