Health Tip: Suggestions to Improve Your Cholesterol

(HealthDay News) -- You should check your cholesterol at least every five years, or more often if there's a problem, the American Diabetes Association (ADA) says.

Your blood sugar and blood pressure could influence your cholesterol levels, the association says, so a person with diabetes should pay particular attention to these risk factors.

The ADA offers these tips to help lower your cholesterol:

  • If you smoke, quit.
  • Lose any excess weight.
  • Exercise most days of the week.
  • Eat a low-fat, low-cholesterol diet with plenty of fresh veggies, whole grains and fruit.
  • Increase consumption of monounsaturated fats, such as canola oil, avocado oil or olive oil.
  • Take a cholesterol-lowering medicine, if your doctor prescribes it.
