High cholesterol is a serious condition because it has the potential to lead to the development of life-threatening cardiovascular problems such as atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease. The term “high cholesterol” refers specifically to high levels of the harmful low density lipoprotein (LDL cholesterol). The other form of cholesterol, high density lipoprotein, is known as “good” cholesterol. When someone receives a high cholesterol diagnosis, they are usually advised to undertake a number of lifestyle changes, such as those relating to diet and exercise, in an attempt to reduce cholesterol naturally.
For some people, these lifestyle changes will not be sufficient and high cholesterol treatment will be recommended in the form of statins. Statins are highly effective prescription medications that are able to lower harmful cholesterol levels. There are a number of different types of statin available, both as branded and generic medications, of which HealthExpress offers ten: Crestor, Fluvastatin, Lipitor, Pravastatin, Atorvastatin, Lescol, Lipostat, Rosuvastatin, Zocor and Simvastatin. To ensure the safety of their patients, HealthExpress only allows those who have been diagnosed with high cholesterol and advised a specific treatment by a doctor to order the medication online.
