Hello,

I understand your concern and would explain that some natural ways to reduce cholesterol levels without the need for statins would be:

- reduce fat and sugar intake (Mediterranean diet is recommended, food rich in omega 3 fatty acids like walnuts, fish, fish oil, etc.)

- try to lose some pounds if you are overweight.

- practice aerobics and regular physical activity.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Ilir Sharka, Cardiologist
