Every diabetes case is different. We will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan according to your specific needs. Your plan may use a combination of approaches that include:
- Lifestyle changes, such as diet, exercise, smoking cessation and weight management.
- Having apheresis, a process that filters LDL cholesterol out of the blood before returning the blood to your body.
- Taking medications, such as statins, which lower cholesterol levels. Other medications include PCSK9 inhibitors, which lower levels of a protein called PCSK9 that can affect cholesterol, and selective cholesterol absorption inhibitors.
