Lower your cholesterol effectively, safely, and permanently!

In this online course, Harvard doctors take the mystery out of managing cholesterol. You’ll learn the best ways to successfully lower bad cholesterol, decrease elevated triglycerides, and achieve the strengthened and enduring heart health you want!

There’s no overestimating the importance of controlling your cholesterol. The CDC says it as directly as possible...”People with high cholesterol have about twice the risk of heart disease as people with lower levels.”

The fact is more than 40% of all Americans have higher-than-normal cholesterol levels. You can take steps not to be one of them.

Perhaps no vital health topic is as confounding as cholesterol. How can there be “good” and “bad” cholesterol? Just what is cholesterol anyway? And why the concern about elevated triglycerides?

Is there more to it than just numbers? Who should be tested? When? How often? Which tests are most revealing? Which tests are most accurate? And why do the guidelines keep changing?

And most important...what can you do to attain and maintain the cholesterol levels that are most compatible and valuable to improved cardiovascular fitness, greater security from heart attack and stroke, and added and lasting protection from heart disease?

Managing Your Cholesterol is an empowering online course that will add to your understanding of cholesterol’s impact on vascular health and introduce you to the strategies and tools you can use to control cholesterol with safety, confidence, and success.
