High Cholesterol

Did you know that High Cholesterol (Dyslipidemia) has nothing to do with how much saturated fat is in your food? Or that the “bad cholesterol” on your last blood test can’t fully be evaluated without an advanced cholesterol test?  Current research tells us that there’s more to having healthy cholesterol than we’ve been taught in past decades.

At Emerald City Wellness we do advanced lipid testing that actually looks at the cardiac risk associated with your cholesterol and treat it accordingly. Most medical providers prescribe a statin at the first sign of elevated LDL Cholesterol. Teresa has training in advanced lipid management and works with dietary changes and various classes of medication to lower cardiac risk associated with cholesterol.
