Hyperlipidemia

With newer diagnostic technology, we are able to take a deeper dive to analyze your cholesterol. For example, we can educate you on whether your cholesterol issues appear to be the results of genetics or absorbed through your diet. With advanced technology, we can better tailor your therapy to your body’s needs.

Hyperlipidemia refers to high levels of LDL or triglycerides in your blood. Hyperlipidemia is treatable, but it’s often a life-long condition. After a lipoprotein panel, we are able to analyze LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, and triglycerides levels to develop a plan to combat high cholesterol. It is particularly important for those with type 2 diabetes to get treatment for high cholesterol as to not further harm your cardiovascular health.

Dyslipidemia

Dyslipidemia refers to unhealthy levels of one or more kinds of lipids (fat) in your blood. Dyslipidemia may not have obvious symptoms; however, it can lead to cardiovascular disease, which can be symptomatic. It also increases the chance of clogged arteries and heart attacks, stroke, or other circulatory concerns, especially in smokers. In adults, it’s often related to obesity, unhealthy diet, and lack of exercise.
