YES (<70 mg/dL) should be considered (<70 mg/dL) YES

LDL-C Rapid

Achieve Secondary Target in

high and very high risk patients
TG ≥ 200 mg/dL

TG ≥ 500 mg/dL High or very high 10-year risk of CHD

Yes No

• TLC LDL-C is above target LDL-C is above target

• Immediate fibrate therapy

regardless of current LDL-C
level and CHD risk TLC and statin therapy TLC and statin therapy

LDL-C target is achieved but

TG is stil ≥ 200mg/dL

Consider fenofibrate addition

Non-HDL-C is apo-B containing lipoprotein
(IDL, VLDL, and LDL)

Non-HDL-C = TC - HDL

Non-HDL-C target is 30 mg/dL above LDL-C target


Monitoring of lipids and

enzymes in patients on lipid-
lowering therapy
Testing Lipids
How often should lipids be tested?
– Before starting lipid-lowering drug treatment, at least 2
measurements with an interval of 1-12 weeks, EXCEPT in
conditions where concomitant drug treatment is suggested such
as ACS and very high-risk patients

How often should a patient’s lipids be tested after starting lipid-

lowering treatment?
– 8 (±4) weeks after starting treatment
– 8 (±4) weeks after adjustment of treatment until within the
target range

How often should lipids be tested once a patient has reached the
target or optimal lipid level?
– Annually (if there is no adherence problems or other specific
reasons for more frequent reviews)
Catapano AL, et al. Eur Heart J. 2016;37:2999-
Monitoring Liver Enzymes
How often should liver enzymes (SGPT) be routinely measured in
patients on lipid-lowering drugs?
– Before treatment
– Once 8-12 weeks after starting a drug treatment or after dose
– Routine control of SGPT thereafter is not recommended during
lipid-lowering treatment
What if liver enzymes become elevated in a person taking lipid-
lowering drugs?
– Continue therapy.
– Recheck liver enzymes in 4-6 weeks
If value rises ≥3x ULN:
– Stop lipid-lowering therapy or reduce dose and recheck liver
enzymes within 4-6 weeks.
– Cautious reintroduction of therapy may be considered after
SGPT has returned to normal.
– If SGPT remains elevated check for other reasons
Catapano AL, et al. Eur Heart J. 2016;37:2999-

q First step: do risk assessment

q Second step: identify LDL-C goal based on risk


q Third step: make strategy to reach LDL-C goal

q Fourth step: treat non-HDL-C in high and very high risk

patients in whom LDL-C target has been achieved but
non-HDL-C is still 30 mg/dl above LDL-C targets

q Fifth step: monitor lipids and enzymes
