The Saint Alphonsus Lipid Clinic was developed to assist providers and patients in the management and treatment of lipid disorders, including genetic cholesterol problems. The lipid team will generate individualized treatment plans with lifestyle guidance and lipid lowering goals to complement pharmacologic intervention. These recommendations are designed to support patients in achieving optimal lipid levels and reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke.
The Saint Alphonsus Lipid Clinic specializes in the treatment and management of elevated cholesterol and triglyceride levels. The program involves medical evaluation, lifestyle assessment, blood testing, nutrition and exercise counseling, and pharmacologic intervention. In addition, advanced lipid and genetic testing, family screening and genetic counseling may be provided.
