Key steps that can help you manage your cholesterol and triglyceride levels.

We also have a printable version of the action plan.

Important actions

The most important action in this plan is to take your medicines as prescribed. There are risks if you don’t take them. If you’re ‘not ready’ to do this, see your doctor to discuss why. Your doctor may be able to prescribe a different medicine if you are worried about side effects.
