Managing CholesterolStreaming Video - 2007
If cholesterol levels are a measure of how long a person will live, why don't more people make an effort to lower them? This program illustrates how LDL and HDL cholesterol affect the heart and circulatory system-and how untreated LDL levels can kill without warning. It also features revealing case studies of three patients-a middle-aged man working to reduce his LDL levels through diet and exercise; a woman who suffered a heart attack during pregnancy, also eating better now; and an elderly man with excellent cholesterol levels, thanks in part to the Mediterranean diet. Dr. Roger Blumenthal of Johns Hopkins Hospital and nutritionist Lisa Bookstein offer expert commentary.
