Lipid Management in Columbus, OH

Understand Your Body and Take Back Control

Diabetes can be a scary condition to manage. It forces dramatic changes in your diet, and it can lead to other complications like dyslipidemia — a condition where your lipid levels (LDLs, triglycerides, and more) are too high. At Endocrinology Associates, we cut through the noise and help put things in simple terms: we will educate you and give you the tools you need to take back control of your body. Additionally, we can tailor our treatments to accommodate patients who desire minimal or no medications.

The What and Why: Proper Lipid Control

Lipid management is designed for patients with high cholesterol, high triglyceride, or low high-density lipoprotein (HDL) levels — in other words, the kinds of things we screen for in patients who may be at risk of developing heart-related problems. This is crucial because people struggling with diabetes are at a higher risk for cardiovascular diseases, largely due to the risk of diabetic dyslipidemia.

Dr. Elena Christofides will lead your lipid management program — she has spent a lifetime both helping patients with diabetes and conducting clinical trials to explore diabetes care, injection systems, and insulin-related questions. With her help, we will create a customized management plan just for you, using a combination of the latest medical research, dietary counseling, and personalized medication strategies. She is also listed on dietdoctors.com as a doctor who supports nutrition-based approaches and minimal-to-no prescribed medications for patients worried about pharmaceutical side effects.

The Benefits of Lipid Management

Managing both lipids and diabetes is typically done together and offers many benefits, particularly those at risk for or currently facing cardiovascular disease. Our approach focuses on:

  • Reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease through targeted lipid control
  • Optimizing blood sugar levels
  • Decreasing the risk of diabetes-related complications
  • Providing ongoing education and support

Is Lipid Management Right for You?

You might be an ideal candidate for our lipid management program if you have been diagnosed with diabetes and are concerned about your risk for cardiovascular disease. You may also be a good fit if you struggle with dyslipidemia management through traditional means, or for those who have a family history of cardiovascular disease.

What To Expect from Your Lipid Management Program

We begin your management process with a comprehensive overview of your health, history, risk factors, and medications, so we have a comprehensive view of your health and any potential challenges. Then we will work with you to create a personalized management plan that may include everything from medication adjustments, lifestyle, and dietary recommendations, and closely monitor your lipid and blood sugar levels. You will also benefit from the support of our team of experts as we work together to achieve your health goals.
