The physicians at Long Island Heart Associates want to assure you that your health is their number one priority. That is why lipid management is a large contributor to Long Island Heart Associates and its patients. Lipid management is the managing of a patient’s cholesterol (HDL and LDL) and triglyceride levels. It is essential for patients to maintain their levels in order to prevent heart disease and other types of medical problems.
What to expect for Lipid Management
In order to manage your cholesterol and triglyceride levels, your physician will run a lipid profile, which will be a simple blood test. You will come in for a quick visit to draw blood and speak with your physician.
How to prepare for your blood test
- No solid foods, caffeine or de-caffeinated drinks for 8 hours before your blood test
- Keep yourself hydrated with only water.
