Atherogenic dyslipidaemia common in Chinese patients at LDL-C goal

Data from the Dyslipidemia International Survey-China study highlight a high prevalence of atherogenic dyslipidaemia among individuals attaining low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) goal with statin monotherapy. In this survey, atherogenic dyslipidaemia was defined as triglyceride levels ?1.7 mmol/L and/or low levels of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (men: <1.0 mmol/L; women: <1.3mmol/L).
The survey included 22,039 patients receiving statin monotherapy, of whom 13,088 attained LDL-C goal according to the American National Cholesterol Education Program Adult Treatment Panel III recommendations. Yet among those at LDL-C goal, 54% had atherogenic dyslipidaemia as residual comorbidity, highlighting an unmet clinical need in this population. Incidentally, the prevalence of atherogenic dyslipidaemia was not influenced by the intensity of statin therapy.
Risk factors associated with atherogenic dyslipidemia in the presence of optimal statin therapy.
