Do We Need a Cholesterol Registry?

By DrLaPuma 8 years ago5 Comments
Home  /  High Cholesterol  /  Do We Need a Cholesterol Registry?
Dr John La Puma

The National Weight Control Registry (NWCR) has documented exactly what people do who have lost weight and kept it off.  Over 5000 people have lost an average of 66 lbs and kept it off for 5.5 years.

The research of the weight control registry helps me coach my clients to long term weight loss too. I use it every day both in ChefMD and in Chef Clinic.

Many of my patients have lowered their LDL cholesterol levels by 50% and raised their HDLs by 40% with diet and lifestyle changes.

So I thought it might be helpful to create a site like NWCR which told the stories of people who have been successful, including changing the shape and size of their cholesterol, from unhealthy to healthy.

Chef Clinic is teaming up with nutrition firm Provident Clinical Research to work together to make this a reality.  If you’re in the Chicago area, Provident is offering free cholesterol screenings currently.

I mention the idea of a cholesterol registry in my first PBS Special, raising money for public TV (the Special airs nationwide starting March 5 2011: @EatCookHealthy has local PBS broadcast times a few hours before air time; Super Healthy Combo pledge gifts here; video preview available).

What should a cholesterol registry do? Should it do research, offer testing, tell best stories, create or rank supplements, give best recipes, or give discounts on meds and tests? What would interest you?
