The best way to beat heart disease is to avoid it in the first place or catch it in its earliest stages. The Temple Preventive and Integrative Heart Health Program offers easy-to-schedule appointments and high-quality care that emphasizes prevention and early detection of heart disease.

Lipid Management

A high level of fat and cholesterol (lipids) in the blood is a major risk factor for many forms of heart and blood vessel disease.

Temple’s preventative cardiologists are dedicated to helping patients reduce these risks and maintain a healthy heart through monitoring and lifestyle changes. Specially trained cardiologists and nurse practitioners in our preventive cardiology program provide tailored advice and direction on avoiding heart disease; they also help patients interested in alternative methods to reduce cholesterol other than traditional medication, those who have had problems tolerating cholesterol medication, provide access to the latest therapies to lower cholesterol, monitor their blood pressure, lipid levels, and behaviors like exercise and smoking. Other specialists, from nutritionists to exercise physiologists, are available for further consultation.
