We are transitioning to a newer technology to check your cholesterol and risk of developing clogged arteries. This newer technology is known as the “VAP” profile and has the potential to give more useful information than the standard Total Cholesterol, HDL (Happy), LDL (Lousy), and Triglycerides. These more detailed reports may help us to further individualize your treatment and medications. We will explain these new reports in further blog posts and when you come in for your physical and visits to go over your lab results. Of course no medicine takes the place of exercising regularly and keeping your weight down to avoid diabetes. Many of our patients need help in getting their weight down which is why we have worked hard to develop our own Healthy Eating And Weight Loss Program.
