DEDTC provides consultation for the evaluation and treatment of lipid disorders. We use specialized diagnostic test and treatment modalities along with dietary education to provide a comprehensive approach to the management of dyslipidemia.
Disorders that we may see in our clinic include:
Genetic lipid disorders (i.e. total cholesterol > 300 mg/dl, triglycerides > 1,000 mg/dl or HDL-C < 30 mg/dl)
Cholesterol or triglyceride elevations refractory to usual treatment
Lipid disorders that are secondary to other conditions such as diabetes or kidney disease
Personal or family history of premature cardiovascular disease
