Clinical Perspective: Nutrition Interventions for Youth with Dyslipidemia

Last Updated: Saturday, 10-Sep-2022 11:00:00 EDT

Dyslipidemia, or high cholesterol, means you have too many lipids (fat) in your blood. Nutrition interventions in youth with dyslipidemia provide short- and long-term benefits without adverse effects on growth or maturation. Counseling by a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) is strongly recommended to help youth and their families successfully alter dietary intake to meet nutritional needs, provide ongoing support, and encourage long-term adherence to healthy nutrition and exercise patterns.
