Duke endocrinologists and other specialists manage and treat the full range of lipid disorders, including abnormalities in your cholesterol, triglyceride and other lipid levels. Lipid disorders can clog and damage your arteries, which increases your risk for heart disease and stroke. Our specialists treat highly-resistant lipid disorders and often develop effective treatment alternatives for people who cannot take statins, the most common cholesterol-lowering medications used today. Our goal is to help you manage your lipid disorder and help you lead a healthier, longer life.
