A study of 65 overweight adults on low-carbohydrate diets found ezetimibe, or Zetia, combined with a statin was better than a statin alone for reducing LDL cholesterol. Researchers said low-carb diets improve triglycerides and HDL-cholesterol, but the high protein content means statins alone are unlikely to reduce LDL cholesterol to optimal levels.
