High cholesterol and high triglycerides (fats in the blood) put a strain on a child’s heart, and raise the risk of dangerous health conditions later in life. If your child has one or both of these conditions, our Nemours Children's Cardiac Center team can create a plan for the personalized pediatric heart care your child needs. Throughout our system, board-certified, fellowship-trained pediatric cardiologists work with other Nemours specialists and your family to address your concerns. We offer the latest treatment options and long-term care, including support services.
