Efficient transportation of energy in the form of carbohydrates or lipids is key to high-level functioning. Changes in this system may result in heart disease and/or pancreatitis.
UF Health endocrinologists specialize in both the common causes of lipid abnormalities associated with diabetes and rare disorders of triglyceride and cholesterol transport. Therapy focuses on treating underlying problems, such as low thyroid or diabetes, and instruction in lifestyle management. Medication is added or adjusted as required to meet treatment goals. Physicians also assess cardiac risk and make referrals to UF Health Cardiovascular Disease as necessary.
