Recent Updates in the Management of Hyperlipidemia

Guest: Stephen L. Kopecky, M.D. 

Host: Darryl S. Chutka, M.D. (@ChutkaMD

What are the updated guidelines for managing hyperlipidemia and how do the risk modifiers change how patients should be treated? What do you do when a patient starts a statin and there is no change in cholesterol levels? What do you do when increasing the dose or switching to a stronger drug continues to have little to no impact? Dr. Kopecky discusses the updated guidelines, challenges with statin therapy, and additional tactics to consider in treating hyperlipidemia.
