It’s Important to Get Cholesterol Testing and Blood Pressure Treatment!

Cholesterol is usually associated with bad news because there’s typically the only context that people hear it in. However, cholesterol is super important to the health of your mind and body. It helps with reproductive hormones, stability of vitamin D and other nutrients and minerals throughout your body, and it helps to eliminate toxic materials. There’s a range of good cholesterol levels, but when it gets high, there are problems. And that’s why cholesterol testing and blood pressure treatment near Safety Harbor are so important.

Polmed Primary Care & Walk-In Clinic is where you’d go to test and treat cholesterol and blood pressure. There are major risks associated with bad cholesterol and high blood pressure, such as heart attack, strokes, and the development of lifelong battles with heart disease. Treatment of high cholesterol and high blood pressure usually involves changes to diet and exercise routines and, in some cases, medications.

While high blood pressure and bad cholesterol are two completely different ailments, both share common symptoms. For instance:

  • Pains or chronic soreness around areas of the gallbladder and liver.
  • Chronic constipation and difficulty having regular bowel movements.
  • Severe dry mouth.
  • Gassiness and indigestion, especially after eating.

Other unexpected symptoms of high blood pressure and high cholesterol include fatty deposits that look like small bumps on your eyelids and around the eyes, nightly leg cramps, and tight, shiny skin on your legs and other extremities. It’s imperative to be attentive to the signs of health issues if you catch them quickly enough, versus the negative effects they have on your health.

A heart-healthy diet and exercise plan are imperative to prevent bad cholesterol and high blood pressure. You can learn more about cholesterol testing and blood pressure treatment near Safety Harbor by calling Polmed Primary Care & Walk-In Clinic at (727) 339-2054.

Great staff, smooth process. Booked through Zocdoc, staff called and confirmed appointment. Visit was friendly and informative. I was looking for a Primary, this office pretty much summed my decision. Thank you Polmed!


I felt very comfortable and welcomed. Doc was very knowledgeable.looking forward to having this team guide me back to health!


I wouldn’t change doctors for anything, Dr. Kaszuba is the best! I overlook the small stuff that is irrelevant ! He goes above & beyond !Not only is he a polite gentleman, but he has nailed every condition I’ve had, proving certain specialists incorrect! He’s old school knows the body in its entirety not just generally! I hope he gets rest, though! Also, his staff are awesome they love him! It’s all a breath of fresh air especially during these times. Thank you, all!


Very professional, i highly recommend


I have been a patient of Dr Kaszuba, Ben Landry, and "Ci Ci" for 15 years. I am a retired 33-year clinican myself. I credit Dr. Kaszuba for saving my life, as he recognized my symptoms at a very early stage, intervened, and took action immediately. His staff maintains a high standard of ethics in their areas of expertise especially Sarah. And have been very considerate of my health status, relaying information and communications.I travel 2 hours one- way for my appointments because of the high quality of care.


Very warm , inviting professional staff..


Love the people there and how they listen to me.. their office is always clean and neat the staff is really nice and lovely


I love the staff and I love how they listen to me when I have a problem.


I have been a patient at Dr Kaszubas’s office for several years now. I cannot express how good it feels to have found an office where the nurses and staff just “get it” and know what they’re doing. They always take the time to listen, which is something you don’t see much of anymore. Denise, Sarah, and the P.A. C.C...outstanding! Not only are they incredibly friendly, but knowledgeable in everything they do. If they don’t have the answer to something, they will have it for you within minutes. Five stars all the way! I am extremely happy with them.
