Introduction to Clostran 9gm Sachet

Clostran 9gm Sachet contains an active component such as Cholestyramine. It is a medication primarily used to lower cholesterol levels in the blood. Cholesterol is a type of lipid that can build up in the bloodstream and contribute to the development of cardiovascular diseases, such as atherosclerosis, hypercholesterolemia, hyperlipidemia, and coronary artery disease (CAD). Atherosclerosis is a condition where plaque forms on the inner walls of arteries, narrowing and hardening them.  Hypercholesterolemia is a condition characterized by high levels of cholesterol in the blood. Hyperlipidemia refers to elevated lipids (fats) levels in the blood, including cholesterol and triglycerides. CAD occurs when the coronary arteries that supply blood to the heart muscle become narrowed or blocked due to plaque buildup.
