Yes, I can easily keep my LDL around 60 by taking Simvastatin and exercising daily.

I have changed my exercise habits; for instance I added 30 minutes of outside activity to my routine. I wear a pedometer daily.

I've never used an app byt imply walking a half hour a day is cardiac protective and will increase HDL which helps balance the total cholesterol level.  And a diet that involves lean protein, lots of fruits and vegetables works to also keep cholesterol in check. Lowered my cholesterol with that simple concept without having to track or record!
That's great! walking is the easiest and safest exercise and helps with many medical conditions. The which i mentioned is a very useful tool for the people who need some guidance regarding lowering the cholesterol level with proper diet.
