Working to lower your risk and treat cholesterol

Lower Your Risk of Heart Disease & Stroke

Cholesterol is present in everyone and is needed for normal bodily functions. However, abnormal levels of cholesterol, such as high LDL (“bad cholesterol”), low HDL (“good cholesterol”), and high triglycerides, are risk factors for heart disease and stroke.

  • Recurrent heart disease or stroke even after typical treatment.
  • Difficulty tolerating statin medicines.
  • Family history of early heart disease.
  • Genetic lipid disorders, such as familial hypercholesterolemia.
  • Other lipid disorders, such as very high triglycerides or high lipoprotein (a).

    • Screening and testing for cholesterol disorders.
    • Education and support for lifestyle changes (diet, exercise and quitting smoking).
