Other Than Taking Pills, Is There Anything Else I Can Do To Lower My Bad Cholesterol?

Question: Other than taking pills, is there anything else I can do to lower my bad cholesterol?

Answer: Other than taking pills, you can modify your life habits, your lifestyle. You can lose weight, you can reduce the intake of animal fats and dairy fats, and you can exercise. So, all of those will help to lower the bad cholesterol, but let me emphasize some people, in spite of that, still have a high bad cholesterol. And their physician may decide that you may need to take medication if you're in that category.
