RX Meds and Diet: A Comprehensive Guide to Lowering LDL and Improving HDL Cholesterol

Conveniently located to serve the Phoenix, Glendale and Scottsdale area.

High cholesterol levels are a major risk factor for heart disease and stroke. While lifestyle changes like diet and exercise can help lower LDL (low-density lipoprotein) cholesterol, sometimes additional measures are needed. That’s where RX medications like Ezetimibe, Statins, Repatha, and Bempedoic Acid come in. In this guide, we will explore the benefits of these medications for reducing LDL cholesterol, as well as the role of diet and supplements in improving HDL (high-density lipoprotein) cholesterol. We will also discuss the advantages of using Beso Wellness to optimize your cholesterol levels.

Ezetimibe

Ezetimibe is a medication that works by blocking the absorption of cholesterol in the intestines. It is typically used in combination with other cholesterol-lowering medications like statins to further reduce LDL cholesterol levels. Research has shown that Ezetimibe can significantly lower LDL cholesterol levels by up to 20%. It is generally well-tolerated and has few side effects, making it a popular choice for cholesterol management.

Statins

Statins are a class of medications that work by blocking a substance your liver needs to make cholesterol. They are some of the most commonly prescribed medications for high cholesterol and have been shown to significantly reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke. While they can cause side effects like muscle pain and liver damage, these risks are generally low and can be managed under the guidance of a healthcare professional.

Repatha

Repatha is a type of medication that works by blocking a protein called PCSK9, which helps regulate LDL cholesterol levels in the body. It is typically used in combination with statins or other cholesterol-lowering medications for patients who have not achieved their desired LDL cholesterol levels with other treatments. Clinical trials have shown that Repatha can significantly lower LDL cholesterol levels by up to 60%, making it a powerful tool in the fight against heart disease and stroke.

Bempedoic Acid

Bempedoic Acid is a new medication that works by inhibiting cholesterol synthesis in the liver. It is typically used in combination with other cholesterol-lowering medications for patients who have not achieved their desired LDL cholesterol levels with other treatments. Clinical trials have shown that Bempedoic Acid can significantly lower LDL cholesterol levels by up to 18%, making it a promising new option for cholesterol management.
