At some point in life most people will need to take some type of cholesterol drugs. It is becoming a natural human condition to eat foods that create the "bad" cholesterol that causes heart attack and strokes. There are both natural and prescription drugs available to reduce your cholesterol and when you discuss the condition with your health care professional they will be able to tell you the advantages and benefits of each type of drug and how you can effectively reduce your cholesterol.
High cholesterol is often not taken seriously because we do not "feel" any badly. We may receive the results of our physical and learn that we have more bad cholesterol in our body than we should. But, for the most part, people will just start taking the pill that is prescribed and carry on with their life without giving it much more thought.
It is important to take high cholesterol seriously and begin to make some changes in your lifestyle that will reduce the amount of cholesterol in your blood. One of the main causes for high cholesterol is weight. There are many conditions and ailments that are directly related to weight and cholesterol is one of them. By losing weight, most people can significantly reduce their high cholesterol.
Losing weight to get healthy does not necessarily mean going on a crash diet and dropping pounds immediately. It is more healthy to lose weight gradually. If you lose just one-half to one pound a week you can make an impact on your cholesterol and overall health.
An easy way to lose one pound a week is to start simple by eating five hundred fewer calories a day. That's right, one pound of weight is equal to about thirty-five hundred calories. So, if you can drop your daily consumption of calories by five hundred or exercise enough to burn 500 calories, you are on your way to losing a pound a week.
Another way that you can significantly lower your cholesterol is to start walking. Walking is a simple form of exercise that has a big impact on overall health and cholesterol. As you lose weight and start to walk regularly, you will also notice that you begin to feel better, your blood pressure can lower, and your stress levels are reduced.
Working with a professional to find the cholesterol drugs that will work most effectively for you and the other steps you can take to lower your cholesterol will have a greater effect than if you just ignore your cholesterol and weight until it reaches critical levels.
