Hyperlipidemia

“no copyright infringement is intended”

Cholesterol is what your body needs to build cells, but too much can be a problem. What can it do to my body? Cholesterol can narrow your arteries which, a clot can form and block your arteries, this can cause you to a heart attack or stroke.

 

Please be aware that having Hyperlipidemia, you do not experience any symptoms. To determine if you have Hyperlipidemia, you will need to take a blood test.

 

When dealing with Hyperlipidemia, please be aware once being diagnosed, you will need to change your eating habits—reducing foods with fat, limit eating red meat and dairy products high in fat. Limit your intake of fry food and cooking with healthy oils. Try not to use vegetable oil.

Eat more fruits, veggies, whole grains, poultry, fish, and nuts. A fiber diet will help with Hyperlipidemia.  Try to stay away from sugary foods and beverages.

Along with eating to bring down Hyperlipidemia, it is best to have a moderate to intense exercise. Please make your exercise an aerobic workout.

 

There are times that even exercise and diet can make it challenging to bring Hyperlipidemia levels down. Medication will help along with your workout and dieting but remember that you oversee your health, and your provider will lead the way.

 

Remember, if you have any questions or feel that you may have Hyperlipidemia, call our office at 404-968-9469 and schedule an appointment with us, at the end of the day we consider every patient our family.
