Avandamet and Cholesterol

Avandamet and Cholesterol: Summary

Avandamet appears to have several beneficial effects on cholesterol. Avandamet increases HDL ("good cholesterol") and decreases triglycerides, LDL cholesterol ("bad" cholesterol), and total cholesterol.
 
Because people with diabetes are at an increased risk for heart disease (see Diabetes and Heart Disease), good cholesterol levels are especially important in people with diabetes. Talk to your healthcare provider about your specific cholesterol numbers and whether you need to take action (through diet, exercise, or medication) to improve them.
