Preventive Cardiology Treatment Options

Depending on your specific needs, recommended treatments may include:

  • Blood pressure management
  • Cholesterol and triglyceride management – board certified lipidologists offer expertise in complex and severe cholesterol disorders and genetic testing when appropriate
  • Diabetes management – for people with pre-diabetes, metabolic syndrome or type 2 diabetes
  • Exercise counseling – starting a new exercise program doesn’t have to be scary or something you need to figure out on your own
  • Nutrition services – nutrition experts with special knowledge of cholesterol issues, high blood pressure, diabetes and obesity can customize the right solution for you
  • Smoking cessation – for patients needing a little extra help in quitting tobacco, we can provide brief behavioral counseling and prescription smoking cessation aids
  • Genetic counseling
  • Stress testing
  • Coronary artery calcium score (CACS) testing – to detect early evidence of atherosclerosis
  • Cholesterol dialysis - the only program in Oregon that performs this highly specialized intervention for patients with genetic hypercholesterolemia.
