“I’m working on managing my high cholesterol so this topic hits home for me. Whenever I see or hear an ambulance, I think about my friends who have had a heart attack or stroke. It’s crazy to think that this happens every 40 seconds in the US.”

LDL-C, also known as bad cholesterol, is one of the most important risk factors for having a heart attack. Your risk for having a heart attack or stroke increases proportionally with higher bad cholesterol levels.
Bad cholesterol is the main cause of atherosclerosis – the formation of plaques in the arteries that can block the flow of blood, which increases your risk for major cardiovascular events, such as heart attack or stroke.
