Lifestyle factors such as diet, smoking history and exercise combine with endogenous predictors such as ethnicity and family history to give every individual a unique risk profile.A comprehensive guide to dyslipidaemias, this book will assist cardiologists, and primary care physicians in their daily task of making an accurate assessment of the patient and then formulating the most effective management programme for each manifestation of this complex group of disorders.Complex manifestations of lipid disorders are reviewed in a clinical context. This book helps early diagnosis of disease and effective treatment strategies to be implemented. It encompasses broad spectrum of pharmacological interventions.
