Pharmacists May Help Patients Prevent and Detect Heart Disease
Date:9/8/2010

n affect cholesterol levels. These are things you can do something about:

  • Diet - Saturated fat and cholesterol in the food you eat make your blood cholesterol level go up. Saturated fat is the main culprit, but cholesterol in foods also matters. Reducing the amount of saturated fat and cholesterol in your diet helps lower your blood cholesterol level.
  • Weight - Being overweight is a risk factor for heart disease. It also tends to increase your cholesterol. Losing weight can help lower your LDL and total cholesterol levels, as well as raise your HDL and lower your triglyceride levels.
  • Physical Activity - Not being physically active is a risk factor for heart disease. Regular physical activity can help lower LDL (bad) cholesterol and raise HDL (good) cholesterol levels. It also helps you lose weight. You should try to be physically active for 30 minutes on most, if not all, days.

  • Things you cannot do anything about also can affect cholesterol levels. These include:

  • Age and Gender - As women and men get older, their cholesterol levels rise. Before the age of menopause, women have lower total cholesterol levels than men of the same age. After the age of menopause, women's LDL levels tend to rise.
  • Heredity - Your genes partly determine how much cholesterol your body makes. High blood cholesterol can run in families.

  • Many pharmacists now offer screenings, consultations and detection services to improve the public's overall health, help manage diseases and chronic conditions and ensure a patient is getting the most from the medications he/she is taking.

    Examples of services pharmacists may provide include:

  • Comprehensive medication reviews or "medication check-ups"
  • Complex medication management services or "pharmacotherapy consults"
  • Monitoring and management of diseases and conditions
  • Disease education, coaching and support services
