High Cholesterol Treatment

Cholesterol is a fatty substance which can develop in your blood. Mainly caused by eating fatty foods, not partaking in enough exercise, smoking and drinking alcohol. It can also be hereditary. Too much cholesterol can eventually block your blood vessels, making you much more likely to have a stroke or heart problems. 

As well as making lifestyle changes, at EU Meds we offer a range of prescription medications designed to treat high cholesterol.

More Information

High cholesterol refers to elevated levels of cholesterol in the blood, particularly low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, often referred to as "bad" cholesterol. High cholesterol is a significant risk factor for heart disease and stroke, as it can lead to the buildup of plaque in the arteries, narrowing them and restricting blood flow. It is typically asymptomatic, so regular cholesterol screenings are essential for early detection and management.

High cholesterol cannot be cured, but it can be effectively managed and controlled through lifestyle modifications, medications, or a combination of both. Treatment aims to lower LDL cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of cardiovascular complications. While lifestyle changes play a significant role in managing cholesterol levels, some individuals may require long-term medication to achieve target cholesterol levels.

Yes, there are natural approaches that can help manage high cholesterol levels and improve cardiovascular health. These include adopting a heart-healthy diet low in saturated and trans fats, while emphasising fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins. Regular physical activity, maintaining a healthy weight, avoiding smoking, and limiting alcohol consumption can also contribute to better cholesterol control. Some individuals may benefit from natural supplements such as plant sterols, omega-3 fatty acids, or soluble fibre. It is important to note that you should always consult with your doctor to ensure that natural treatments are safe and suitable for your condition.

High cholesterol treatment typically involves a combination of lifestyle modifications and medications aimed at lowering LDL cholesterol levels and reducing the risk of cardiovascular events. Lifestyle changes may include dietary adjustments, increased physical activity, smoking cessation, and weight management. Medications such as statins, bile acid sequestrants, cholesterol absorption inhibitors, or PCSK9 inhibitors may be prescribed to lower cholesterol levels and improve cardiovascular health.

High cholesterol treatments come in various forms, including oral medications, injectable medications, and lifestyle interventions. Oral medications such as statins are commonly prescribed and may need to be taken once daily. Injectable medications are typically administered by a healthcare provider. Lifestyle interventions such as dietary changes and regular exercise are essential components of cholesterol management.

Yes, most high cholesterol medications require a prescription from a healthcare provider. You should always consult with your doctor or healthcare provider for advice on whether a medication is suitable for you. Please note that at EU Meds, all requests for the supply of prescription medications are subject to an online clinical consultation, and the decision to prescribe will be made by a doctor.
