Children with high levels of cholesterol or other fats in their blood cannot be treated like small adults; they need a different approach that considers their growing bodies. Our pediatric endocrinologists and cardiologists at Atlantic Medical Group treat children with lipid disorders. Our team approach not only can diagnose dyslipidemias, but also incorporates nutrition counseling, exercise, and lifestyle changes. We both prescribe and monitor medications as necessary.
Familial hypercholesterolemia is the most commonly occurring congenital metabolic disorder, with risk for premature atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. If diagnosed, full treatment is available from our team every step of the way.
