Blood Tests For Cholesterol Levels Give Women More Heart Disease Treatment Options

September 28, 2009: 01:37 PM EST
With heart disease now the leading cause of death in American women, experts are urging them to get the appropriate blood tests to determine “good” and “bad” cholesterol levels. As reported by CNN, early awareness of levels of high density lipoproteins (HDL, the “good” cholesterol) and low density lipoproteins (LDL) gives women better options than open heart surgery for dealing with heart disease. These options can include weight control, eating a healthier diet (i.e., fruits, vegetables, low-fat dairy), getting more exercise, and taking medication.
