Knowing what to do is much easier than following through. Research shows that the more you communicate with your dietitian, the more likely you are to meet your nutrition goals. We have an amazing app to help you communicate with your dietitian. Use the Nourishly app to keep food logs and photos of your food so we can help you lower your cholesterol level.
Good vs Bad Cholesterol Testing
The lipoprotein particle testing we offer is different from the standard test done by your doctor. The lipid profile goes beyond the standard “good” HDL cholesterol and “bad” LDL cholesterol, and will show us not only your cholesterol levels but also the particle sizes of the cholesterol. Studies have shown the the sizes of the lipoprotein particles are more important when it comes to preventing plaque formation, rather than the cholesterol itself.

Our dietitians are here to take you step by step through everything you need to know about lowering your cholesterol through the food that you eat. We can help you make eating to lower your cholesterol less overwhelming. We know that everyone is unique, and don’t believe in the “one size fits all” approach. By working together, we can come up with personalized steps to take to improve your cholesterol profile and help you feel your best!
