Difference Between treating High Cholesterol at DPC Vs. Insurance Based Doctors in Bergen County

Cholesterol medications can often cause intense fatigue and muscle aches. The “natural” supplements like red yeast rice have the same exact side effects as statins (cholesterol medications) but most doctors don’t know much about natural supplements and their side effects. In addition, many doctors overtreat high cholesterol instead of optimizing your entire picture of health as a whole. Dr. Kaul has Integrative Medicine training, both in a program through the University of Arizona’s Integrative Medicine curriculum that was integrated into her residency and through the Institute for Functional Medicine, which helps to shape her recommendations and treatment plans for you. Our goal is to optimize your health in the best way that we can, and in doing so, Dr. Kaul will help you to find the right combination of lifestyle change that is right for you, changes in your diet or supplements and medicine, if needed.
