Flashcards in Dyslipidemia Deck (26):
1

Optimal LDL

<100 mg/dL

2

Near optimal LDL

100-129 mg/dL

3

Bordeline LDL

130-159 mg/dL

4

High LDL

160-189 mg/dL

5

Very High LDL

>= 190 mg/dL

6

Desirable total cholesterol

<200 mg/dL

7

Borderline high total cholesterol

200-239 mg/dL

8

High total cholesterol

>= 240 mg/dL

9

Low HDL

< 40

10

Borderline high HDL

>60

11

Calculated LDL

LDL = chol - HDL - TG/5

Used if TG < 400

12

Negative risk factor

HDL > 60 negates 1 risk factor from total count

13

LDL risk factors

-Cigarette smoking
-HTN (BP>140/90 or on anti HTN meds)
-Low HDL (<40 mg/dL)
-Family history of heart dz or diabetes
-REcent MI
Age (men >= 45, women >= 55)

14

LDL goals for 0-1 risk factor

<160

15

LDL goals for 2+ risk factors

<130

16

LDL goals for CHD or equivalents

<100

17

LDL goals for very high risk

<70

18

Goals, Observed LDL, and Lipid Lab intervals - CHD/risk equivalent

<100
<100
<1 year

19

Goals, Observed LDL, and Lipid Lab intervals - 2+ risk factors

<130
<130
=< 2 years

20

Goals, Observed LDL, and Lipid Lab intervals- 0 - 1 risk factors

<160
=< 130-159 --> =< 2 years
<130 --> =< 5 years

21

ASCVD Tx

High (< 75) or moderate (>75) intensity statins

22

LDL >190 mg/dL Tx

High intensity statin

23

Diabetic + 45-70 years + LDL between 70 & 180

Moderate statin

24

High intensity statin LDL redux

50% lowering of LDL

25

Moderate intensity statin LDL redux

30-50% lowering of LDL

26

Low intensity statin LDL redux

<30% lowering of LDL
