July 3rd, 2014. Boynton Beach, FL. South Palm Cardiovascular Associates has published a new article discussing the importance of keeping your cholesterol levels under control. According to the Boynton Beach-based center, cholesterol levels are one of the most reliable predictors of your risk for cardiovascular disease, so keeping them under control is the best way to lower that risk.
The Palm Beach cardiologist heart doctors of South Palm Cardiovascular Associates remind the public that the first step in reducing your heart attack risk is to find out what your cholesterol levels are. “This can be accomplished via a simple blood test, which will tell you and your doctor your current levels of LDL, HDL, total cholesterol, and triglycerides. Then, if your cholesterol levels are high or out of balance, you can work with your doctors to bring them to safer levels.” They also want patients to understand that the lifestyle changes needed to lower cholesterol levels and thus heart risk are pretty simple – lose weight, eat a more heart-healthy diet, get more exercise, stop smoking, use alcohol sensibly, and if medications are prescribed, take them.
South Palm Cardiovascular Associates feels that if the public becomes more aware of the facts about cholesterol, they will be more proactive in bringing it under control. Interested readers can find more information about this important issue at: http://www.southpalmcardiovascular.com.
