doctor and patient

As a person with lupus, any of your doctors can check your cholesterol levels. It is often your primary care provider (PCP) or family doctor that checks your cholesterol. But any doctor can do it, even your rheumatologist. After having your cholesterol checked, it is important to follow up with your doctor to discuss your results. Your doctor can use your cholesterol test to check your overall risk of heart disease. Make sure you keep all your doctors informed on the results of your cholesterol test. They can help you lower your risk of a heart attack or stroke.

Any doctor can do the test to have your cholesterol addressed!
