Lipid Heart Clinic
Elevated lipids, particularly cholesterol, put young people at risk for heart disease later in life. The Cardiac Center's Lipid Heart Clinic evaluates and treats children and adolescents who have high levels of lipids (fats) in their blood.
We offer support and guidance to your family as you make healthy lifestyle changes. The Lipid Heart Clinic offers customized dietary recommendations, and in some cases, prescribes medication to reduce a child's risk for the early onset of heart disease.
Our Lipid Heart Clinic includes physicians, nurse practitioners and registered dietitians from the Divisions of Cardiology, Endocrinology and Gastroenterology. As a team, we will work together to develop a personalized care plan for your child. We treat children and teens up to age 18.
