Can lifestyle modifications help in reducing LDL cholesterol?

Excessive amounts of LDL (Low Density Lipoprotein) particles are associated with the development of atherosclerosis, the underlying cause of heart disease.

Changes in lifestyle can help reduce LDL, but are likely to have only a minor impact. These include:

  1. Eating foods high in unsaturated fats such as olive oil, fatty fish and avocados

  2. Eat anti-inflammatory foods like green vegetables, nuts and seeds, dark chocolate and avocados

  3. Introduce any form of exercise that you enjoy into your routine, including brisk walks, strength training, swimming, and yoga, 4 to 5 days a week, for 30-45 minutes each time, performed at a moderate level of intensity

It is always a good idea to consult with your doctor/lipidologist for medical intervention and more proactive management of high LDL levels.
