Example text

In addition, serum triglyceride levels are inversely related to HDL levels, and a reduction in triglyceride levels is associated with a rise in HDL. Raising HDL may protect against CAD, therefore providing an additional rationale for treating hypertriglyceridemia. 21 mm/L [240 mg/dL]) (see Table 2-4). 91 mm/L (190 mg/dL) are very high. 54 mm/L (60 mg/dL) are considered to be high. The NCEP recommends an approach in adults based on LDL-cholesterol levels (Figure 2-2, Table 2-6). Management should always begin with dietary intervention, as outlined in Table 2-7.

In patients with heterozygous hypercholesterolemia who have not achieved desirable cholesterol levels on resin-plus-diet therapy, the combination therapy of bile acid resins and HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors or nicotinic acid can further lower serum cholesterol, triglyceride, and LDL levels and increase serum HDL concentration. (3) Side effectsâ The side effects of bile acid resins include constipation, gastrointestinal irritation or bleeding, cholelithiasis, liver function test abnormalities, myalgias, dizziness, vertigo, and anxiety.

In modest daily doses, HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors reduce total and LDL-C at a rate of 15â 50% and may reduce triglycerides by 10â 30%. Although effective as monotherapy, HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors can be combined to good effect with bile acid sequestrants when a greater effect on cholesterol is required, or with fibric acid derivatives when an additive effect on triglyceride levels is desired. These combinations may, however, increase the risk of rhabdomyolysis. (1) Mode of actionâ Most cholesterol that is endogenously produced is synthesized in the liver.
