Cholesterol Action Kit

Cardiovascular disease is a leading cause of preventable illness and death in New York City, causing more than 25,000 deaths and more than 130,000 hospitalizations each year. Elevated low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol is a major – but modifiable – risk factor for cardiovascular disease; however, two-thirds of New Yorkers (approximately 400,000 people) who have atherosclerotic disease or diabetes have not met their LDL goal of <100 mg/dL.
