In noon conference today I reviewed the good, the bad, and the ugly of the recently released ACC/AHA cholesterol treatment guidelines. Below is a YouTube video review of the guidelines. It will be interesting to see how cholesterol management evolves over the next few years. There are groups like the National Lipid Association who feel that removing the LDL goals from the new guideline was a mistake. Likewise, the European Society of Cardiology lipid guidelines recommend titrating statins to LDL targets. Conflicting guidelines are always a problem. I will address conflicting guidelines in my next post and what to think about when you see conflicting recommendations on seemingly the same topic.
