Beaufort Memorial’s Dr. Stuart Smalheiser and Kassie Nicknadarvich, a registered dietitian with the hospital’s LifeFit Wellness Center, have teamed up to answer a few questions about how your food choices can affect your cholesterol levels.


  • How can cholesterol affect your health?
  • What’s the difference between good and bad cholesterol?
  • Is decreasing my cholesterol consumption enough to reduce my cholesterol levels? Or is there something else I should be doing?
  • What specific foods should I avoid when trying to reduce my cholesterol? Eggs are bad, right?

For the answers to these and other cholesterol-related questions, check out Dr. Smalheiser’s interview in Pink Magazine.
