Many Americans are managing their cholesterol through
a combination of diet, exercise, and cholesterol-lowering medications. You can learn how to lower cholesterol, too.
Living a healthy lifestyle, such as eating a diet that is low
in saturated fats and cholesterol and getting at least 150 minutes of exercise each week, may help lower cholesterol naturally. When diet and exercise alone aren't enough, your doctor may add a cholesterol-lowering medicine.
It's up to you and your doctor to decide
what will work best for you, based on your
individual situation, your medical history,
and your general health.
Talk to your doctor about prescription CRESTOR.
When diet and exercise alone aren't enough to lower cholesterol, adding CRESTOR can help.
In adults, CRESTOR is prescribed along with diet to lower high cholesterol and to slow the buildup of plaque in arteries as part of a treatment plan to lower cholesterol to goal.
