Lowering bad cholesterol (LDL-C) can feel overwhelming


Discover the potential connection between bad cholesterol and heart
disease

A common type of heart disease is called atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, or ASCVD. It is caused by consistent high levels of bad cholesterol (LDL-C) in the blood that can lead to the buildup of plaque in your arteries.

You may not have any obvious symptoms of bad cholesterol, but plaque buildup can cause serious problems, like:

  • Heart attack

  • Stroke

  • Blockages within the arteries, causing chest pain

If you have heart disease known as ASCVD or are at increased risk of developing heart disease, it's important to understand the role of bad cholesterol and what you and your doctor can do to lower yours and keep it low.

It is not known if LEQVIO® can decrease problems related to high levels of bad cholesterol, such as heart attacks or stroke.
