Lowering Your Risk

Proactive steps like not smoking, maintaining cardiac fitness and controlling abnormal blood cholesterol play a critical role in avoiding a first or recurrent cardiovascular event. Learn more

The Lipid and Prevention Program at the Cardiovascular Institute is dedicated to reducing the risk of first and recurrent heart attacks in at-risk adults.

For more than a decade, our preventive cardiologists and nurse practitioner have worked with referring providers to reduce the risk of heart attacks in patients with severe cholesterol disorders.

Today, we provide the only cardiology-based prevention practice in Rhode Island where referred patients undergo clinical diagnosis and treatment of cholesterol disorders by practitioners who have achieved national board certification or accreditation in clinical lipidology.

We treat patients who have:

  • Severe cholesterol disorders
  • Poor cholesterol control despite medication
  • Intolerance to cholesterol-lowering medication
  • Personal or family histories of early coronary heart disease

What to Expect

We provide a clinical diagnosis for every patient based on his or her baseline cholesterol profile, family history and, if needed, advanced lab testing. We tailor diet, exercise and medication recommendations to each patient’s disorder and level of cardiovascular risk. We are available for consultation and follow-up, or consultation only. We work in collaboration with our patients’ primary care physicians, providing updates after every visit, and evaluate self-referred patients as well.
