Description

Doctors increasingly prescribe "cholesterol lowering" drugs that patients will take every day for the rest of their lives. But a daily pill only addresses a small part of the cholesterol problem. In this book, Dr. Richard Furman shows you how to understand what your cholesterol numbers mean, how best to change levels of both the "lethal" LDL cholesterol and the "hero" HDL cholesterol, and how to adjust your lifestyle in order to stay off of expensive medications that don't address the whole problem (and often have negative health-impacting side effects). Ready to take charge of your cholesterol?
