    Why would you not want to take medication that may save your life? There are some people with inherent cholesterol issues that can not be resolved by change of diet alone.

    You can outsmart high cholesterol. Eat a healthy diet, exercise, and take medicine as your doctor recommends to lower your levels (Dont run away from them!!!).

    The first step: Ask your doctor if it’s time for you to have a fasting cholesterol blood test. If they're high, ask your doctor what numbers are ideal for you based on your personal health and risk factors. Also ask how often you need the test.
