Silvergate promotes a one-on-one, customer-focused approach to home building

High cholesterol is a silent condition. If you don't monitor your levels, or put off your medication, an aggressive buildup of plaque can block a key artery or blood vessel, which can cause chest pain, a stroke or a heart attack.

When it comes to managing cholesterol, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. High cholesterol is a silent condition. If you don't monitor your levels, or put off your medication, an aggressive buildup of plaque can block a key artery or blood vessel, which can cause chest pain, a stroke or a heart attack.
KNOW YOUR BASELINE
For those of you who are over the age of 50, it's not uncommon to see cholesterol numbers, as well as blood pressure levels, inching up. Visit your doctor on a yearly basis for routine blood tests so that you know where you're at. Your blood pressure and cholesterol correlate to heart-related conditions, and if you can keep both numbers down, you reduce the chances of these events happening.

TAKE YOUR MEDICATIONS
According to the 2017 Drug Trend Report, by Express Scripts Canada, the use of medications to manage high cholesterol has increased. However, the data shows that close to 40 per cent of its members do not adhere to their medication. As high cholesterol doesn't exhibit any symptoms, many people feel the same whether they take it or not. The medication needs to be taken on a continuous basis for it to work. Organize your medications, and set a reminder in a way that will prompt you to take them properly.
REVIEW YOUR OPTIONS
Consult with your doctor to see which medication is best for you. Your pharmacist can ensure that you're adhering to it correctly. The most common cholesterol medications are statins. These are typically taken once per day, and don't interfere with a person's lifestyle, nor do they have many side effects. Natural treatments include niacin or vitamin B3. A larger dose of niacin has been shown to increase good cholesterol (HDL) by almost 20 per cent. Other classes of drugs, called fibrates, can also be helpful, as well as cholesterol-absorption inhibitors that can be taken in conjunction with other cholesterol-lowering agents (like fibrates) to help lower the amount of cholesterol absorbed through your diet. More recently, an injectable medication has been made available for extreme cases.
DIET AND LIFESTYLE
It has been proven that 20 to 30 minutes of physical exertion, five times per week, can significantly reduce blood pressure and cholesterol levels. In addition, a small reduction in body weight is directly linked to lowering cholesterol. Limit your red meat and dairy intake (which can contribute to bad cholesterol), and stop smoking and eating trans-fat foods. Add extra fibre and psyllium to your diet. These can be found in fruits and vegetables, or by taking a supplement. One or twice a week, eat cold-water fish, like salmon, sardines and mackerel.
It's easy to manage your cholesterol when you're armed with the proper information.
