Cholesterol is a “sleeper” because you may not have any symptoms. There is good cholesterol and there is bad cholesterol, but we need to know where we’re at with both of these.
A place to start could be to take a quiz to see what your risk looks like. This can be done during a wellness exam, as a covered screening and hopefully, the results will be great. If not, you know where you’re at with it and your doctor will make recommendations accordingly. If we have high expectations for our doctors when we need them, we need to give them something to work with.
