EvergreenHealth’s lipid management service offers a patient centered approach to help adults reduce their cholesterol and minimize other risks for heart disease.
Our pharmacists are lipid specialists with advanced training in cholesterol management. We follow the national cholesterol guidelines as well as recommendations in patient centered care from the National Lipid Association.
Our goal is to achieve measurable improvements in cholesterol, triglycerides, blood sugar and weight loss.
We develop a plan with you based upon your specific cardiovascular risk that includes lifestyle change with nutrition and exercise, and medications if needed.
We will work with you to identify opportunities for dietary change to improve your cholesterol and overall cardiovascular health.
Our pharmacists may recommend additional comprehensive dietician counseling if covered by your insurance benefit. This can be especially beneficial for diabetic and pre-diabetic patients.
We will work with you to develop an exercise plan that supports your cholesterol goals and cardiovascular health.
After maximizing lifestyle change, our pharmacists determine what might be the best medication approach for you based upon your cardiac risk, your medication history, and your personal preferences.
You will need a physician referral to enroll in lipid management offered by EvergreenHealth Pharmacist Provider Services.
Your visit is typically covered by insurance, but you may want to verify this coverage with your individual health plan.
Once we have received a referral from your physician, we will contact you to schedule your first appointment.
