#42 in a series of Health Bulletins on issues of pressing interest to all New Yorkers

Control Your Cholesterol: Keep Your Heart Healthy

  • High cholesterol is a preventable and treatable cause of heart disease and stroke.

  • 1 in 4 adult New Yorkers has high cholesterol, but many don’t know it.

  • High cholesterol has no symptoms. The only way to know you have it is to get checked by your doctor.

  • It won’t go away on its own. High cholesterol stays high unless you take action – and keep taking action.

  • Physical activity, healthy diet, and healthy weight can prevent and reduce high cholesterol.

  • Cholesterol-lowering medications are safe and effective.
