In brief: Two Things
Statins and lifestyle.
The cholesterol-lowering medications known as statins dramatically decrease the severity and extent of arteriosclerosis, and engaging in a low-salt low-cholesterol diet with a healthy serving of exercise will increase the medications effects dramatically. When treated to particularly aggressive goals, studies have shown that this combination can even reverse some damage.
