In clinical studies of adult patients with type 2 diabetes, Welchol lowered A1C, fasting plasma glucose and LDL-C, important risk factors for cardiovascular disease.*  In clinical studies of patients with elevated LDL-C, Welchol lowered LDL-C when used as monotherapy, when added to statin therapy, or as initial combination with statin therapy.(2)

*The effect of Welchol on cardiovascular morbidity and mortality has not been determined.
