Treating Your Cholesterol Might be Easier Than you Think!

We get it. Taking medication is nothing new. With capsules for everyday arthritis aches, tablets to quell seasonal allergies, vitamins for eyesight and supplements for the immune system, it may feel like you’re already running a small pharmacy out of the medicine cabinet! Because when it comes to your health and wellbeing, you already know that it simply isn’t worth it to cut corners. And Cholesterol treatment should be no exception. The good news is that treating dangerous cholesterol levels can be as easy as adding just one medication to your daily routine. Standard “statin therapy” drugs like Lipitor (Atorvastatin), Lescol (Fluvastatin), and Altoprev (Lovastatin) provide an array of viable treatment options, while recent developments in the field of cholesterol treatment have resulted in the creation of new cholesterol-shredding “PCSK9 inhibitors” such as Praluent (alirocumab) and Repatha (evolocumab), which are even more effective at combating high-risk cholesterol levels and preventing heart attacks, and are less likely to harmfully interact with other medications or affect pre-existing conditions.
