Abstract

Among Australian patients primarily treated with statins, nearly one-third had MD despite LMT. LMT considerably improved LDL-C goal attainment; however, a large proportion of patients did not achieve normal HDL-C and TG levels. Patients may benefit from a more comprehensive approach to lipid management that treats all three lipid risk factors, as suggested in clinical guidelines.
