High Cholesterol in Rochester Hills, MI & Belleville, MI

Cholesterol is a wax-like substance produced by the liver and found in the blood. While cholesterol is often spoken about in negative terms, it actually plays an important role in many of your body's vital functions, from making new cells to digestion. It is when your body has too much "bad" cholesterol (or low-density lipoprotein) that you may experience negative consequences for your health, including heart disease and stroke. While certain lifestyle factors — such as smoking or poor diet — can raise your risk of having high cholesterol, this condition can occur in anyone. At WellHealth Medical Associates, our trained staff provides wellness screenings and solutions to manage your cholesterol levels so you can get your health in check. To schedule your cholesterol screening, contact our practice in Belleville or Rochester Hills, MI.

There are no symptoms associated with high cholesterol, which is why it's important to schedule regular wellness exams to monitor your health. Cholesterol levels are measured with a test called a lipid panel, which assesses your levels of low- and high-density lipoprotein, as well as your triglycerides. We'll also ask about your lifestyle, medical history, and whether or not heart problems run in your family. If we determine that you have high cholesterol, we'll respond with a custom-tailored treatment plan that combines dietary changes, exercise guidance, and prescription medication to help manage your LDL levels. Throughout your treatment, we'll schedule regular follow-up appointments so our team can track changes in your health and adjust your plan as needed.

The only way to be sure about your cholesterol levels is to schedule a screening with a primary care provider or specialist. There are a few conditions and behaviors that have been linked to high cholesterol levels, including:

  • Poor diet
  • Lack of physical activity
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Smoking
  • High levels of stress
  • Genetics

These are just a few of the common causes of high cholesterol. If you believe you might be at risk, we urge you to set up a lipid panel at our office in Belleville or Rochester Hills, MI at your earliest opportunity.

I’ve been going here for years now. Dr. Murthy is a great doctor. Always looks out for my best interest. Only thing I’ve ever had a problem with is getting called on Friday night for video when my appt was on a Wednesday. But I understand there’s only 2 providers and a lot of patients. Other than that they helped me with a lot. Thank you guys

Dr. Murthy is incredibly knowledgeable in treating even the most complicated health issues. I have multiple autoimmune problems and since I’ve started seeing him, he has given me my life back! He is very understanding and compassionate and his superior knowledge in rare diseases make it so easy to talk to him and get the best treatments. I never believed it was possible for me to have a life without pain and I am forever grateful to him for giving me that! His PA Dr. Olivia is the best, she is very easy to talk to and very compassionate and knowledgeable as well. The entire staff at this office are amazing 😊 My 3 year old daughter and I are always happy to go in and see everyone! They make you feel very comfortable, like you’re family 😁 This is by far the best Primary Care office I have been to in over 10 years and I’m so blessed to have found them Thank you 🙏
