However, the costs of LDL-lowering drugs are currently in flux and appear to be declining. Some cholesterol-lowering agents are currently available over-the-counter OTC e.

This review discusses several issues, including: When drugs are prescribed, attention to TLC should always be maintained and reinforced. Therapeutic lifestyle changes are the foundation of clinical primary prevention. As a result, the primary goals of therapy and the fspaol for initiating treatment are stated in terms of LDL.
wtp Table 5 defines LDL cholesterol goals and cutpoints for initiation of TLC and for drug consideration for persons with three categories of risk: Management of the metabolic syndrome has a two-fold objective: Mortality from coronary heart disease in subjects with type 2 diabetes and in nondiabetic subjects with and without prior myocardial infarction.
However, if the goal has not been achieved, LDL-lowering therapy can be intensified, either by increasing the dose of statin or by combining a statin with a bile acid sequestrant or nicotinic acid.

This syndrome is closely linked to a generalized metabolic disorder called insulin resistance in which the normal actions of insulin are impaired. The third ATP report updates the existing recommendations for clinical management of high blood cholesterol.
The usual drug will be a statin, but alternatives are a bile acid sequestrant or nicotinic acid. In addition, ATP III recognizes that some persons with high long-term risk are candidates for LDL-lowering drugs even though use of drugs may not be cost effective by current standards.
