Around 6% of adults in the UK have high levels of dangerous low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol. In general, men tend to have higher levels of blood cholesterol than women prior to menopause. Although having high cholesterol isn't a disease in itself, it can be the cause of many arterial problems as well as heart disease. Many people aren't aware that they have a problem with high cholesterol until they develop complications.
Lifestyle changes such as more exercise and a better diet, are the best way to lower cholesterol levels. Sometimes this is not enough and you will be prescribed medications such as Simvastatin, Crestor and Lescol. These treatments, alongside others, are available to order from HealthExpress by completing our free and confidential consultation. To start the process, simply click on the link below.
