Last November we discussed the updated lipid guidelines. We wanted to revisit the treatment options for dyslipidemia and discuss some of the updated data that has been recently released. We review pathophysiology, as well as statin and non-statin therapy options. We walk through the algorithms for secondary prevention for patients with ASCVD, treatment for hypercholesterolemia, primary prevention, and statin use in patients with diabetes. We also review the recently published REDUCE IT trial from the New England Journal of Medicine.
