MCareMD : What we treat

What is this?

We all need cholesterol.  It is responsible for building the surrounding membrane of our cells.  But, we only need it in small quantities.  When the yellow waxy substance circulates the blood stream in too large of a quantity, it can deposit in the walls of the blood vessel and cause occlusion in the arteries.  This can occur anywhere in the body.  When it happens in the heart, it can cause a heart attack.  When it happens in the brain, it can cause a stroke.   Though high cholesterol can be genetic, it is often the result of unhealth lifestyle choices.  For this reason, many cases of high cholesterol are preventable and treatable.

What are the symptoms?

High cholesterol is asymptomatic.  Patients don’t complain of high cholesterol itself, only the diseases it can cause such as peripheral artery disease (PAD), myocardial infarctions, angina, and strokes.  

Can it be treated?

High cholesterol is a very treatable condition.  Many patients are able to maintain normal cholesterol levels with healthy diet and exercise.  Others require prescription medications.  

How can MCare M.D. help?

If you have high cholesterol, rest assure everything you tell us is completely confidential.  If the doctor thinks that you should continue your current medication, he or she will send an order to the pharmacy of your choice instantly.
