Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Recent developments have given new impetus to the prevention of coronary heart disease through the control of hypercholesterolaemia and there is increasing pressure to identify and treat individuals with high serum cholesterol levels. It is now imperative that we develop a rational and cost-effective management policy. Epidemiological considerations indicate that although various strategies exist, the most cost-effective method of reducing the burden of hypercholesterolaemia in New Zealand would be by changing the nations diet as a whole. We cannot afford a strategy based primarily on treating high risk individuals.
