Many people think of lipids and cholesterol as the same thing. Lipids are simply a group of naturally occurring molecules that includes cholesterol, triglycerides as well as other fats and oils. Understanding your lipid profile means knowing your cholesterol and triglyceride numbers.
Specialized appointments for lipid testing are made available through enrollment in our Lipid Clinic. Our Lipid Clinic helps patients achieve and maintain a healthy cholesterol profile. A healthy cholesterol profile reduces the risk of recurrent heart disease. Lipid Clinic participants receive a combination of cholesterol education, diet and exercise recommendations, and lipid-lowering medications.
