Sample text

In patients without coronary disease, having fewer than two cardiac risk factors confers a low risk. For this group, a goal LDL of less than 160 exists. Having two or more cardiac risk factors confers a moderate to a moderately high risk. For these patients, as further described later, the Framingham score should be used to distinguish those at higher risk. For both of these risk groups, the goal LDL is below 130. However, for those with a moderately high-risk class, or a 10-yr risk of between 10 and 20% based on Framingham, a stronger emphasis is placed on pharmacotherapy.

If TGs are between 200 and 499, goal should be to achieve non-HDL goal cholesterol, which is set at 30 mg/dL more than LDL-cholesterol goals. If TGs are less than 200, meaning that the dyslipidemia is solely isolated to low HDL, drugs for HDL raising can be considered. These drugs include nicotinic acid or fibrates. Pharmacotherapy for isolated low HDL is mostly reserved for persons with coronary disease or risk equivalents. Elevated Serum Triglycerides Elevated serum TGs are also considered an independent risk factor for coronary disease.
