Cholesterol is a concern for everyone, but for elderly adults, it needs to be a top priority. For folks from this age group, there are specific concerns that loved ones caring for them need to have on their radar. Regular monitoring for high cholesterol, understanding cholesterol ratios, and ultimately, treatment of the condition, all play a part in keeping your loved one as healthy as possible.
If you think that cholesterol is only an issue for older men… think again. According to the American Heart Association, the number one killer of women in the United States is coronary heart disease, and many of these women have heart attacks later in life. This is in part due to changes in cholesterol after menopause.
