All patients with evidence of atherosclerotic disease should undergo intensive lifestyle modification, including striving to maintain an ideal weight, engaging in physical activity in daily life, and not smoking. You should discuss with your doctor how to lower your own risk of atherosclerosis and its complications and make sure that your lifestyle is healthy as possible, and also determine if you could benefit from medicine as well.
