Where can I find information about a healthy diet for high blood cholesterol?
When you have high cholesterol, your healthcare provider may recommend that you follow a diet that helps lower your cholesterol. FNIC cannot provide individualized medical nutrition advice, but has general resources devoted to cholesterol at Diet and Disease > Heart Health.
- The National Cholesterol Education Program resource called Your Guide to Lowering Cholesterol with Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes (PDF | 1.7 MB) discusses strategies for making heart-healthy changes.
- MedlinePlus: Cholesterol offers an interactive tutorial called Managing Cholesterol, also available in Spanish as Controlando el Colesterol.
- The American Heart Association provides Cholesterol Tools and Resources including low-cholesterol recipes, educational brochures, and the Heart360 Health Tracker.
These resources provide general information and do not take the place of consultation with your healthcare providers, including an RD. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics can help you locate an RD with Find a Registered Dietitian.FAQ category:
