Three-Part Program To Lower Cholesterol

A new guide "Your Guide to Lowering Your Cholesterol with TLC (Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes)" is a new publication designed by National //Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) to help you make the lifestyle changes needed to reduce cholesterol and with it the risk for heart disease.

September is National Cholesterol Education Month and the new guide released has lifestyle tips to reduce cholesterol. The guide details a three-part program of diet, physical activity, and weight management designed to bring cholesterol levels down. Nearly 65 million Americans have high blood cholesterol.

"Lifestyle is crucial for lowering cholesterol but it's not enough to tell people it's important—you have to help them do it. This guide offers a set of tools to help people get started and to embrace a heart-healthier way of living," said the NHLBI's James Cleeman, M.D., coordinator of the National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP).

The 80-page easy-to-read booklet is based on the NCEP's guidelines on cholesterol management. These guidelines emphasize the importance of therapeutic lifestyle changes (TLC)—intensive use of heart-healthy eating, physical activity, and weight control—for cholesterol management. TLC is the cornerstone of treatment, according to Cleeman, even if someone also has to take a cholesterol-lowering medication.

As the booklet explains, following a TLC diet means reducing saturated fat, trans fat, and cholesterol in order to lower LDL, the “bad” cholesterol. How do you know how low your LDL cholesterol should be? Your goal LDL level is determined by your risk for developing heart disease or having a heart attack. To help you determine your risk, the new guide includes the NCEP 10-year coronary heart disease risk calculator. Once your LDL goal is determined, you and your doctor can use the new booklet to implement TLC and reach your goal.
