Interpreting Lipid Profiles
Poor old cholesterol, it’s been unfairly demonized for decades. It’s been blamed for causing diseases like atherosclerosis, heart attacks, stroke, transient ischaemic attacks and peripheral arterial disease. In reality, cholesterol is not the cause of the problem, but rather a response by our body to protect us against the real underlying causes of the problem. The currently available treatments are focused around reducing cholesterol levels. These treatments are reactive, they don’t address the cause of the problem and actually hinder our body’s ability to heal itself.
In this webinar, we are going to explore what cholesterol does in the human body, why there is not such thing as good or bad cholesterol, why elevated cholesterol levels are actually a beneficial response and why therapies targeted towards stripping cholesterol out of the body or inhibiting its hepatic synthesis are actually doing more harm than good.
The main focus of this webinar will be about how to interpret lipid profiles which includes the following analytes;
- Total cholesterol
- Cholesterol to HDL ratio
A range of therapeutic strategies for patients with low and high cholesterol levels will also be discussed.
