The majority of persons with these latter abnormalities are overweight or obese and sedentary. In many patients, the LDL cholesterol goal will be achieved, and high-er doses will not be necessary.

One potential Page 15 secondary target of therapy is espqol metabolic syndrome, which represents a constellation of lipid and nonlipid risk factors of metabolic origin.

If the LDL goal cannot be attained sepaol standard lipid-lowering therapy, consideration should be given to seeking consultation from a lipid specialist.

At all stages of dietary therapy, physicians are encouraged to refer patients to registered dietitians or other qualified nutritionists for medical nutrition therapywhich is the term for the nutritional intervention and guidance provided by a nutrition professional. They should benefit from changes in life habits, similarly to men with categorical increases in waist circumference. N Engl J Med,pp.

The emerging risk factors do not categorically modify LDL cholesterol goals; however, they appear to contribute to CHD risk to varying degrees and can have utility in selected persons to guide intensity of risk-reduction therapy.

Quantification Ezpaol Cardiology MS: Hypertriglyceridemia as a cardiovascular risk factor. Nonetheless, some persons at higher risk because of high or very high LDL cholesterol levels or because of multiple risk factors are candidates for LDL-lowering drugs. A statement from the Council on Clinical Cardiology subcommittee on exercise, rehabilitation, and prevention and the Council on Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Metabolism subcommittee on physical activity.

If an OTC cholesterol-lowering drug is or becomes available, patients should continue to consult with their physicians about whether to initiate drug treatment, about setting the goals of therapy, and about ioi for therapeutic responses and side effects.

Persons with very high LDL cholesterol usually have genetic forms of hypercholesterolemia: This report recognizes that as drug prices decline it will be possible to extend drug use to lower risk persons and still be cost effective. At present, emphasis should be placed on controlling other lipid and nonlipid risk factors and on treatment of the metabolic syndrome, if present. The emergence of triglycerides as a significant independent risk factor in coronary artery disease.

Currently available drugs that affect lipoprotein metabolism and their major charac-teristics are listed in Table 7. If the LDL cholesterol goal is still not achieved, consideration can be given to further intensification of ato therapy.

Persons at relatively high risk are also candidates for drug treatment, which is very effective but entails significant additional expense. Si continua navegando, consideramos que iki su uso. It augments the lipid and nonlipid risk factors of the meta-bolic syndrome. When the metabolic syndrome or its associated lipid risk factors elevated Page 7 triglyceride or low HDL cholesterol are present, TLC also stresses weight reduction and increased physical activity.
