Help Patients With Their Cholesterol

Cholesterol is a fatty substance (lipid) that is naturally produced in your body.  It circulates through your body in your blood. You need some cholesterol for normal body function; however if there is more cholesterol in your body that it can use or get rid of, the excess cholesterol builds up inside your arteries in the form of fatty deposits called plaque. Patients can lower their cholesterol by doing the following:
  • eat less saturated fat
  • eat more high fiber food
  • watch your alcohol intake
  • kick the tobacco habit
  • exercise regularly
  • avoid sugary foods and drinks 
LDL cholesterol is important for everyone, men and women of every age, with or without heart disease to have a low LDL cholesterol level. Speak to your health providers for more information on your individual cholesterol levels.   For more information about diabetes education and patient education material please subscribe to our Blog. At HERC publishing we take pride in providing educational materials that are easily understandable, up to date, and provide educators the materials that patients need to be educated and in control of their lives.
