LOTS more patients on lipid-lowering drugs

You'll see LOTS more patients on lipid-lowering drugs. New guidelines recommend treating nearly 3 times as many patients as before.

And high-risk patients will get more aggressive therapy. This is ANYONE with diabetes...plus many patients with 2 or more risk factors...hypertension, smoking, low HDL, or family history of heart disease.

Aim for an LDL < 100 mg/dL in high-risk patients. Everyone should now aim for new targets...HDL > 40 and triglycerides < 200.
