abstract

  • Approximately 11% of all American men >20 years of age have low levels of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (<35 mg/dl) in isolation, with an even higher prevalence in high-risk populations. One feature of the 1993 National Cholesterol Education Program guidelines-and the focus of this month's CME-accredited case study-is an increased emphasis on high-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels as an important aspect of risk stratification for coronary heart disease.
