Summary
Lipid disorders are highly heterogeneous and widely prevalent throughout the world. Dyslipidemia is an important risk factor for atherosclerotic disease and its clinical sequelae, including myocardial infarction, ischemic stroke, and death. The impact of dyslipidemia treatment on risk for cardiovascular disease is one of the most intensively studied issues in all of medicine. This volume is an innovative approach to the identification and management of lipid disorders. Organized as a series of questions, each chapter presents a detailed yet accessible discussion of the problems posed. The ques

Contents
  • Contents; Editors and Contributors; Foreword; Preface; 1. How well do various lipids and lipoprotein measures predict cardiovascular disease morbidity and mortality?; 2. Framingham risk scoring or risk factor counting: which is more sensitive and how do I use this information to determine patient-specific lipid goals?; 3. What is the metabolic syndrome, how do I treat it and is it a high-risk condition?; 4. Should all patients admitted to the hospital with an acute coronary syndrome initiate statin therapy?
  • 5. What are CAD risk equivalents and how did these clinical entities come to be so defined?6. When should children and adolescents be screened for dyslipidemia and how should they be treated?; 7. Management of dyslipidemia in women; 8. In high and very high-risk patients, is it true that when it comes to LDL-c, lower is better and can a serum LDL-c be driven too low?; 9. How should we approach the statin-treated patient with myalgia?; 10. Pleiotropic effects of statins and their relevance to cardiovascular outcomes
  • 11. An update on the 'rubber chicken' treatment of dyslipidemia: therapeutic lifestyle change and the alphabet soup of behavior modification12. What is the best place for fibrate therapy in reducing cardiovascular risk?; 13. Niacin for dyslipidemia management and atheroprevention: why, when and how?; 14. Which dietary supplements have proven efficacy for impacting serum lipids and cardiovascular outcomes and are any vitamins harmful to the cardiovascular system?
  • 15. Why do lipid-lowering agents affect serum transaminase levels, are these drugs toxic to the liver and can they precipitate liver failure?16. Should we treat a low serum HDL-c and what specific lifestyle changes and drugs can be used to raise a low HDL-c?; 17. What is familial hypercholesterolemia and how should it be treated?; 18. Should plasma levels of lipoprotein (a) be measured? Guiding principles from bench to bedside; 19. Clinical utilization of advanced lipid testing
  • 20. Should we treat dyslipidemia in the elderly and is there an upper age limit to instituting lipid-lowering therapy?Abbreviations; Index
