Cholesterol Management – Directions

Cholesterol Management – Directions

Cholesterol Management Center
Phone: (203) 789-4303

We’ve all heard the pitch from cereal companies that oat bran and other natural grains are crucial in controlling cholesterol.  We might even remember that the ideal (normal) cholesterol level for a healthy adult is under 200.  But why is cholesterol management, also referred to as “lipid management,” important?

Lipids include cholesterol along with LDL, HDL, and triglycerides.  Higher blood LDL is sometimes referred to as “bad cholesterol” because LDL particles contribute to plaque formation.  Whereas functional HDL is considered “good cholesterol” because it offers  protection against plaque.  Plaque is associated with cardiovascular disease.  In turn, this could lead to heart attack, stroke, and peripheral artery disease, a vascular disorder.  Achieving optimal lipid levels is essential for the prevention of coronary artery disease and maintaining a healthy body.  It is also an important part of diabetes control.

At our Cholesterol Management Center, board-certified lipidologists provide state-of-the-art treatment for all types of lipid disorders.  Along with prescribing and closely monitoring medications, personalized recommendations are provided for:

  • weight control
  • physical activity/exercise
  • stress management
  • healthful nutrition

Located on the Second Floor of 175 Sherman Ave., the Cholesterol Management Center helps physicians and patients evaluate and manage cholesterol and other lipid disorders with lifestyle interventions and pharmacological treatment if needed.
