In brief: Management

Start by seeing your dr for evaluation.
Reduce weight - BMI < 28, eat right: low fat, low (bad) cholesterol, consider high quality fish oil, cessation of smoking, exercise (if you are healthy enough per your physician), reduce alcohol consumption, take prescribed medications as directed. Know your numbers: cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar and work with your physician to optimize them.

In brief: No

No, there is no cure, but you can decrease your risk by controlling your blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes, and don't smoke.
