Understanding Cholesterol

Cholesterol is a fatty substance found in your blood that's necessary for building cells and producing certain hormones. However, too much cholesterol can lead to plaque buildup in your arteries, increasing the risk of heart disease and stroke. Managing your cholesterol levels is crucial for maintaining heart health.

Our Cholesterol Management Services Include:

  • Cholesterol Screening: Regular testing to monitor cholesterol levels, including LDL ("bad" cholesterol), HDL ("good" cholesterol), and triglycerides.
  • Personalized Treatment Plans: Development of individualized treatment strategies that may include medication, dietary changes, physical activity, and weight management.
  • Nutritional Counseling: Guidance from our nutritionists to help you understand how your diet affects cholesterol levels and overall heart health.
  • Lifestyle Modification Support: Assistance in making sustainable lifestyle changes to lower cholesterol levels and improve heart health.
  • Ongoing Monitoring and Support: Regular check-ups to monitor your progress and adjust your treatment plan as needed.

FAQs on Cholesterol Management

Why is managing cholesterol important?

Managing cholesterol is vital to prevent the buildup of plaque in your arteries, which can lead to heart disease, heart attack, and stroke.

How often should I have my cholesterol checked?

The frequency of cholesterol screenings can vary depending on your age, risk factors, and current cholesterol levels. We generally recommend a cholesterol test every 4-6 years for adults with average risk.

Can lifestyle changes really improve my cholesterol levels?

Yes, lifestyle changes such as eating a heart-healthy diet, exercising regularly, quitting smoking, and maintaining a healthy weight can significantly lower cholesterol levels and reduce heart disease risk.

Are medications always necessary to manage high cholesterol?

Not always. While some individuals may require medication to manage their cholesterol levels effectively, others may be able to achieve target levels through lifestyle modifications alone. We will help determine the best approach for you.
