Your body requires some cholesterol to work correctly. Cholesterol takes a trip via the blood on proteins called lipoproteins. A high LDL degree brings about an accumulation of cholesterol in your arteries. Your liver eliminates the cholesterol from your body. If you have high cholesterol, way of living changes can aid you to lower your cholesterol degree. You should still continue with the way of living changes even though you are taking medicines. Your health and wellness treatment provider may suggest medication if: You have currently had a heart attack or stroke, or you have peripheral arterial disease; Your LDL cholesterol level is 190 mg/dL or higher; You are 40-75 years old, you have diabetes mellitus, and your LDL cholesterol degree is 70 mg/dL or higher; You are 40-75 years of ages, you have a high risk of developing cardiovascular disease or stroke, and your LDL cholesterol level is 70 mg/dL or higher.
