In the case of high cholesterol, some patients should start the drug immediately, while in some patients it is recommended to regulate only the way of life.
What are these situations?
- those with familial fat disease,
- those with metabolic disorders,
- have a history of bypass surgery, have undergone carotid or leg vessel surgery and have high cholesterol,
- people with diabetes
Cholesterol medication should be started for such patients and cholesterol medication should be used regularly.
On the other hand, we do not recommend medication if they have high cholesterol levels and do not have the additional features mentioned above and only advise them to adjust their lifestyle. We recommend regular exercise and a healthy diet, and we want them to stay away from smoking.
