The best way to manage cholesterol is with lifestyle change and not (necessarily) by the use of statins.  Here are a few healthy tips to keep you on the right track:

Watch your weight – even being a few pounds overweight can raise your cholesterol levels.

Watch what you eat – limit your cholesterol intake.  Aim for no more than 300 milligrams (mg) of cholesterol a day — less than 200 mg if you have heart disease or diabetes.

Exercise most days – Whether you’re overweight or not, exercise can reduce cholesterol.

Drink plenty of healthy water and limit your alcohol intake.

It’s time to take control of your own health!  It’s easier than you think and well worth the effort!
