A Sellersville cardiologist weighs in on the latest medical information that more people should be prescribed drugs to lower their cholesterol. Doctor Todd Aldefer says, he would consider several factors before writing a prescription for a patient.
“Family history, cholesterol, hypertension, stroke, diabetes, age, but your average 35 year old guy who has no health problems and no family history, you don’t necessarily need to treat just the number. You know, there are some things we have to start with, including diet, exercise and lifestyle before we consider any cholesterol fighting drugs.”
Doctor Alderfer was a guest on the AM Edition Thursday morning
