  • How to assess your risk for high cholesterol
  • How to work with your doctor to develop the best treatment plan for you
  • Cholesterol-lowering drugs--who should take them, what to look out for, and how to be sure your doctor is monitoring you properly
  • How to manage your cholesterol through diet and exercise
  • The latest scientific findings on alternative therapies
