Did you know that about 1 in 6 adults have high total cholesterol, which can double your risk for heart disease?
Total cholesterol is made up of HDL, the good cholesterol that you want to keep high, and LDL, the bad cholesterol, in addition to triglycerides, that you have to keep low.
Your levels can have a range, from healthy to unhealthy, that’s why it’s important to know your numbers.
Discuss your readings with your doctor and learn how medication, diet, and exercise can help maintain healthy cholesterol levels. Know your numbers. Be CardioSmart.
