  should statin use in every patient whose LDL is > 190mg/dl regardless of his age? for example, a patient with 40 years old and have LDL > 190mg/dl but no other factor is present i.e no DM)?

  Any1 with LDL above 190 mg/dL you should start them on drug/high intensity stat + diet/exercise modification.


Something 4u to know->

---------------------Start restricted diet----------Start stat

0-1 risk factors------more than 160----------more than 190
2+ risk factors-------more than 130----------more than 160
CAD/or=-------------more than 100----------more than 100-130
