She also describes in that case, diet and exercise can help the patient lower their cholesterol levels. In some cases, medication is required. Dr. Jonathan Fialkow, Chief Population Health Officer with Baptist Health South Florida, agrees with her and adds the condition is individualized. Family history, genetics and other components are important.
