Think Again About Cholesterol
December 21, 2015. Our Think Again About Cholesterol survey results have been published as a supplement in Atherosclerosis! The survey was originally launched this September in support of World Heart Day and FH Awareness Day to raise awareness of the public’s understanding of cholesterol. The survey found there is a discrepancy between understanding the importance of high cholesterol and taking action against the risk for cardiovascular disease. In fact, although 89 percent of adults surveyed agreed it is important to know whether or not they have high low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), 92 percent did not know their cholesterol levels or never had their cholesterol levels tested. For more detailed survey results, check out Atherosclerosis Supplements 20 (2015) 1–5.
