What Is Hyperlipidemia?

Also known as high cholesterol, hyperlipidemia occurs when there are too many fats in your blood. When left untreated, this condition can cause blockages in your blood vessels, increasing your risk for heart attack or stroke. Hyperlipidemia may not always promote visible symptoms, which is why it is important to receive proper diagnostic testing to determine your cholesterol levels. At Health Direction Medical Center, Dr. Esmilkrys B. Ramirez and Dr. Carlos Mella-Picel can help to properly diagnose and provide optimal treatment plans for high cholesterol, improving your overall wellness. To learn more, contact one of our Chicago, IL locations to schedule your initial consultation.

How Is Hyperlipidemia Treated?

During your initial visit to our facility, our team of skilled physicians will perform diagnostic tests and identify your medical history to evaluate your cholesterol levels and any potential risks. If your levels are elevated but not within a dangerous range, monitoring and lifestyle changes, such as regular exercise and a low cholesterol diet, may be recommended. In other instances, prescription medications may be given to help lower your levels. You may need to continue to attend follow-up appointments in order to receive continued monitoring of your levels to determine the effectiveness of the medication and make any necessary changes to your treatment plan.
