Dyslipidemia occurs when there are abnormal amounts of lipids (fats) or lipoproteins (cholesterol) in the blood. This program will educate the audience about Dyslipidemia and Cholesterol Management and will focus on risk assessment (blood test, family history, imaging, etc.). The program will also discuss what patients can do to better assist their physicians in managing their high lipid levels and reducing their risk for cardiovascular and other diseases, including improving their diet, adding regular exercise, and other lifestyle modifications. The main goal of the program is to educate the audience on the treatment options available to them, and offer guidance about lifestyle changes that can help them lower their risk for serious diseases in the future.
