Information

Welchol is a medication used to lower cholesterol. It is also used to lower high blood sugar in people who have type 2 diabetes. This medication is sometimes used together with other cholesterol-lower medications to be more effective. Keeping LDL (“bad” cholesterol) and blood glucose levels lower can reduce the risk of hardened arteries, which leads to heart attacks, stroke, and other circulatory problems. It also protects kidney damage, blindness, loss of limbs and sexual function.
