Lipid Management

Your body needs cholesterol to function properly, but too much cholesterol can put you at risk for problems such as heart attack and stroke. Early detection, management, and treatment of high blood cholesterol (hyperlipidemia) is key in reducing this risk. Your Upstate Cardiology physician will work closely with you to tailor a plan to best manage your cholesterol. This plan should include exercise and diet education and may also include medications to regulate your cholesterol levels.
