Non-HDL Cholesterol and Triglycerides: Implications for Coronary Atheroma Progression and Clinical Events
Coronary Artery Disease
Achieved non-HDLC levels seem more closely associated with coronary atheroma progression than LDLC. Plaque progression associates with achieved TGs, but only above levels of 200 mg/dL. These observations support a more prominent role for non-HDLC (and possibly TG) lowering in combating residual cardiovascular risk.
