Hi, my name is Dr Warrick Bishop. Well, I bet when you think of cholesterol, you tend to think of Statins. Well, it turns out Statins are not the only answer to cholesterol. There are other agents available. One of the agents we've got is something called ezetimibe. A tablet that sits mainly within the gut and slows down the absorption of cholesterol.
We also have new agents on the market medications that come in injectable form, and these injections literally provide an antibody to the receptor that controls cholesterol within the liver. Lowering cholesterol levels very effectively.
Well, if you're interested in what's available in terms of lowering cholesterol, I've done a podcast below. Please click on that and have a listen and get some more detail in the meantime, of course, I wish you the very best. Take care and bye for now.
