The first step in cholesterol management is to eat right and exercise, see our Nutrition page. Then it is good to obtain an accurate measurement of your cholesterol profile.
The commonly used cholesterol test can be inadequate at calculating disease risk. It does not measure cholesterol parameters that provide crucial information to help keep patients healthy.
We use tests like:
the Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) lipid profile test, which is a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) of your blood.
Cardio IQ is another excellent test we use to get detailed information about your cholesterol
We use the results to accurately tailor a program of diet, supplements, exercise and/or medication to address every single imbalance in the patient’s cholesterol profile results.
This method is more advanced compared to the treatment possible based on information obtained by the commonly used cholesterol test.
