Dyslipidemia affects almost half of American adults and is the most prevalent manageable risk factor for atherosclerosis. Lipid disorders often co-occur with other prevalent conditions such as diabetes and kidney disease; they are also often a concern with certain medication regimens (such asanti-retroviral and certain anti-psychotic agents). Proper treatment of dyslipidemia can reduce the risk of peripheral arterial disease, revascularization procedures, nonfatal myocardial infarction, stroke, and cardiac death. However, only 20% of adults meet the national guidelines for cholesterolcontrol.As part of the Oxford American Cardiology Library, this practical handbook is designed to serve as a concise yet authoritative resource on diagnosing and treating dyslipidemia. The book is tailored to the needs of busy health care professionals treating patients in various clinical settings, andfocuses on presenting essential information to clinicians who are at the forefront of the diagnosis and management of dyslipidemia. Featuring evidence-based, concise yet comprehensive discussion of key clinical concepts in addition to numerous figures, tables and illustrations, this pocket-sizedhandbook will serve as an invaluable guide to healthcare professionals.
