Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Hyperlipidaemia is a major cause of coronary heart disease (CHD) and is especially prevalent in Britain. Prior to lipid-lowering therapy it is necessary to define the type of lipoprotein abnormality present and whether it is primary or secondary. Diet forms the initial treatment but additional drug therapy may be necessary in patients with established CHD or considered to be at high risk of developing CHD or rarely, in the case of severe hypertriglyceridaemia, acute pancreatitis.
