  • Overview

    Cardiovascular disease (CVD) remains the leading cause of death in the United States. The American Heart Association estimates that 33% of men aged 40 to 59 and nearly 33% of women aged 60 years and older have high triglyceride levels. Most goals for CVD prevention or management involve raising HDL levels while lowering LDL and triglyceride levels to recommended ranges. However, more and more research is showing that triglyceride levels are an independent risk factor for CVD, greatly increasing the chances of heart disease and stroke. This activity will offer pharmacists a greater understanding of the new cholesterol guidelines and review CV outcomes trials to improve management of patients at risk of ASCVD events.
