Abstract

Hyperlipidemia is a serious disease that affects the health and well-being of many, and further complicates other chronic illnesses. When treating a patient who has a lipid disorder, it is wise to take a global approach to the problem by assessing the patient's history and risk factors, collaborating on developing a healthy lifestyle plan to which the patient can commit, and initiating appropriate therapy when indicated.
