Cholesterol in Irving, TX

Cholesterol, a vital substance naturally produced by the liver and present in various foods, is carried through the body by low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and high-density lipoprotein (HDL). Bad cholesterol (LDL) can adhere to artery walls and create plaque that obstructs blood flow. Conversely, HDL cholesterol is beneficial as it removes excess cholesterol and transports it back to the liver. It is crucial to keep cholesterol levels within a healthy range to avoid serious health issues, such as artery blockage, heart disease, and stroke. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Enid Romanelli at YourClinic in Irving, TX for a cholesterol check.

At YourClinic, we approach high cholesterol management in several ways based on the specific type of cholesterol elevated and its level. For some, making dietary adjustments to reduce saturated and trans fats, such as lessening the consumption of red meat and dairy, may suffice to lower cholesterol levels. You might also consider adding more foods rich in omega-3 or supplements to your diet. In other instances, we might recommend statins, medications designed to halt the progression of more severe illnesses linked with cholesterol levels. During your consultation, we will collaborate with you to create a personalized treatment plan based on your unique needs.

High cholesterol often presents no obvious symptoms, making it a silent but significant risk factor for various serious health conditions. It's important to monitor cholesterol levels regularly to prevent complications. Some associated symptoms or indicators of high cholesterol that may eventually emerge include:

  • Chest pain: If cholesterol builds up in the heart's arteries, chest pain or angina can occur when the heart does not receive enough oxygen.
  • Stroke symptoms: A blockage in an artery serving the brain can cause sudden numbness, weakness, or paralysis on one side of the body.
  • Peripheral artery disease: High cholesterol can lead to narrowing of arteries in the legs, manifesting as leg pain when walking.

These symptoms are typically late signs of advanced cholesterol-related conditions, emphasizing the need for regular health screenings to detect and manage high cholesterol early.

Melissa and Nic are the best, I came for a weight loss consultation and was able to find different procedures that help with not just body fat and sculpting but also vaginal rejuvenation, something I had been wanting to do without the downtime as I have 3 kids! I’m beyond grateful and feel more confident in every way! HIGHLY RECOMMEND 👏
