Through our partnerships with Boston Heart and Genpath, Littleton Gynecology and Wellness now offers expanded cholesterol testing. This is a comprehensive lipid panel that goes beyond just looking at HDL and LDL and tells us much more about what’s going on with your overall health, which will better inform how we can provide specialized gynecological care at our Littleton office.
The Importance of Cholesterol Screening for Littleton Women
Heart disease affects women in substantially higher numbers than men. It’s important for all healthcare providers to be aware of heart problems their patients might be having so that they can adjust treatment plans accordingly. At Littleton Gynecology and Wellness, we are committed to our patients’ entire wellness, whether our patients are here for care through pregnancy or for Botox or for a gynecological procedure.
Cholesterol Screening for Our Littleton Patients
Patients with high cholesterol numbers have a greater risk of heart attack or stroke, which are the two leading causes of death in the United States, according to the Center for Disease Control. Being aware of our patients’ heart conditions in addition to their overall health will aid us at Littleton Gynecology and Wellness in determining which procedures and treatments might be too risky to pursue for a patient.
