Cholesterol Levels Should Be Checked Yearly


Some of us are regretting how much we ate on Thanksgiving yesterday.

Dr. Thomas Kottke with HealthPartners, says now is the time to check heart health and cholesterol levels…

Kottke says “the new trials suggest that it’s not possible to go too low, we worried in the past that we could over-treat patients, but even bad cholesterol levels as low as 40 or 30 seem to be just fine.”

Kottke says if you’re not on medication to manage cholesterol, you should get levels checked at least once a year.
