- DM; inc TC, TG, LDL and dec HDL
- alcoholism inc TG and HDL
- Obstructive Liver Dz; inc TC, abnormal LDL
- Sedentary Lifestyle; dec HDL
- obesity; inc TG, dec HDL
- hypothyroidism; inc LDL, possibly inc TG
What are the dgs that induce hyperlipidemia?
- diuretics (thiazides, loops)
- alpha agonists and antagonists
what was the paradigm shift in new treatment guidelines for dyslipidemia?
- tx to reduce atherosclerotic cv dz
- statin benefit groups
- out with the old (tx to goal = tx to target, lower is best, tx level of risk, tx lifetime risk)
what is ASCVD?
- Stable and unstable
- cornoary revascularization
What are lifestyle modifications?
- inc intake of fruits, veggies and whole grains
- reduce calories from sat fat
- reduce percent of calories from trans fat
- engage in aerobic activity (40 mins, 3 times/wk)
What are the 4 benefit groups?
- 1. cholesterol >190,
- 2. secondary prevention (ascvd)
- 3. diabetes with cholesterol 70 - 189 and 40-75 yo
- 4. 10 yr risk >7.5%, no diabetes
what is the tx for group 1?
- </= 75 = high intensity
- >75 = mod
what is the tx for group 2?
What is the tx for group 3?
- ASCVD risk <7.5% = mod
- ASCVD risk >/= = high
what is the tx for group 4?
mod-high for >/= 7.5%
what are the two exceptions to guideline tx recommendations?
what are the high intensity statins?
- atorvastatin 40 - 80mg
- rosuvastatin 20mg
what are the absolute CI to statins?
