The article reports that results from a national study suggested that counseling from dietitians can help lower cholesterol, according to Doctor Kathy Rhodes, manager of nutrition services at the University of Michigan Cardiovascular Center. It is said that 44.6% of 175 patients with triglycerides greater than 400 milligrams per deciliter either reduced their low-density lipoprotein (LDL) levels by at least 15% or reached their cholesterol level goals.
