Lipid disorders and obesity

Measurements of cholesterol levels, preferably subdivided into ‘good’ and ‘bad’ cholesterol, together with the determination of blood glucose levels, are the most popular of tests and often conducted spontaneously, without referral by a doctor.

The problem comes the moment irregularities are detected in the results. No patient likes dietary recommendations, which are the basis of treatment.

Pharmacotherapy, or application of medicines, should be only a subsequent step in the therapy. Patients are rarely aware that there are numerous factors which, as in the case of heightened cholesterol and blood sugar levels, can accelerate the progress of atherosclerosis with all its consequences. They are responsible, for instance, for most cases of cerebral stroke in young, ‘healthy’ people with correct cholesterol levels. These factors include homocysteine and the whole lipoprotein complex.

Thanks to cooperation with the largest Irish laboratory, we can determine nonlipid risk factors for atherosclerosis. This allows us to implement the appropriate therapy and formulate directions for the patient. In the case of detection of heightened homocysteine levels, it is enough to use such methods as simple dietary recommendations together with appropriate vitamin supplementation.
