    Symptoms of High Cholesterol

    There are no outward signs or symptoms of high cholesterol. A blood test is required to determine if your cholesterol level is too high.

    How Treatment Works for High Cholesterol

    By knowing your numbers, our medical professionals can provide the best treatment for high cholesterol, low testosterone, and other related conditions. Treatment is a four-step process:

    1. Health Assessment
      One of our medical professionals will conduct a comprehensive health assessment that includes a simple blood test. This blood test is a full lab panel, including a lipid panel, which measures the fat in your blood.
    2. Personalized Plan
      If your numbers reveal signs of high cholesterol, your provider will create a personalized treatment plan targeted to your symptoms, body, and lifestyle, including diet and exercise. Low T Center’s Head of Internal Medicine and Wellness works with your provider to coordinate and refine your treatment plan.
    3. Treatment Regimen
      Your treatment regimen is based on your personalized treatment plan. For some patients with high cholesterol, changes in lifestyle (healthy diet and regular exercise) are enough to lower cholesterol levels. If necessary, your provider will prescribe medication — often statins — to help manage cholesterol. Your provider will continue to monitor your progress with every visit.
    4. Optimization and Prevention
      Once your regimen is underway to address your high cholesterol (or other underlying conditions), your provider will optimize treatment to maximize your health and wellness.

    Cost of High Cholesterol Treatment

    Low T Center is in network with most insurance providers. The cost for treating high cholesterol is dependent upon your individual health insurance plan. Patients are responsible for all applicable deductibles or co-pays under the terms of their plans.

    Potential Side Effects of High Cholesterol Treatment

    Side effects from cholesterol treatment vary based on the method of treatment chosen by your provider. Control through diet, for instance, presents different side effects than control through medication. During your visit, your provider will discuss possible side effects and contraindications involved with recommended treatment.
