Lipoprotein(a) levels are not affected by the foods you eat or your activity level. There are no prescription medications, including statin drugs, that have an impact on reducing levels. That doesn’t mean you don’t have options if you live with an elevated lipoprotein(a). Using supplements, such as omega 3’s, niacin, and vitamin C are three options for reducing lipoprotein(a).
Work with your doctor to learn your lipoprotein(a) and the best treatment approach for you.
All the best,
