Cholesterol is a lipid (fat) crucial for normal body functioning that is produced by the liver. High cholesterol or hyperlipidemia is the condition of elevated levels of lipids in the blood plasma. Hyperlipidemia is a disorder of lipoprotein metabolism which can lead to a wide variety of cardiovascular disorders such as atherosclerosis, coronary artery disease, hypertension, and angina pectoris.

Diabetes mellitus, a chronic endocrinologic disorder, is characterized by high blood levels of glucose due to insufficient secretion of insulin by the pancreas or improper utilization of insulin by target cells. Dr. Matt Van Benschoten has over 28 years of clinical, research, and teaching experience. He reviews in this course cholesterol and diabetes, with a comprehensive review of herbal medicines that can treat these conditions effectively. Clinical examples will illustrate the most important points regarding history taking and optimal prescribing strategies.

  • Identify statin resistant hyperlipidemia and appropriate herbal medicines that can effectively reduce hyperlipidemia.
