Expertise When You Need It
Almost half of our patients come to us because they can’t get treatment elsewhere for statin intolerance. We specialize in developing alternatives for you and have led research to find new strategies for lowering low density lipoproteins, also known as “bad” cholesterol.
Personalized Treatment Plans
Medications are effective at treating lipid disorders, but some of our patients prefer not to take daily medication. We’ll work with you to develop the most effective treatment possible that fits your lifestyle and preferences.
Advancing Lipid Disorder Research
Experts in our Duke Lipid Clinic and Duke Cardiometabolic Prevention South Durham research new ways to advance management of lipid disorders. This work allows our doctors to identify new ways to approach disease and gain access to the most advanced treatments.
