The 2013 ACC/AHA Guideline on the Treatment of Blood Cholesterol to Reduce Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Risk in Adults clearly states that diet and lifestyle should always be the first approach to manage the risk of heart disease.
Being aware one's cholesterol numbers, along with how to improve them, is an important part of diet and lifestyle management.
The National Cholesterol Education Program ATP III recommends, "Cholesterol lowering is important for young, middle-aged, and older adults. 1 out of every 2 men and 1 out of every 3 women will develop heart disease sometime in their life. Whether you have heart disease or want to prevent it, you can reduce your risk for having a heart attack by lowering your cholesterol level."
According to the Center for Disease Control, heart disease is the top killer. Everyone needs to be able to understand their risk factors and how to lower them.
This poster, designed for smaller spaces like exam rooms and health rooms, accomplishes heart health education in one glance.
Help all individuals understand their cholesterol numbers and how to lower them through diet and exercise with this Cholesterol Poster with matching Cholesterol Handouts. Handouts include tips and strategies following recommendations from the TLC Plan plus a fun Cholesterol puzzle and bulletin board sample layout.
