Other lifestyle changes to lower cholesterol levels
- Get active. Be physically active for at least 150 minutes a week e.g. 30 minutes five times a week, by doing moderate- to vigorous-intensity aerobic physical activity. This helps to increase ‘good’ HDL cholesterol levels and reduce high triglyceride levels
- Be smoke-free. Quit smoking and avoid second-hand smoke. This will help in particular for low HDL levels.
