Diabetic patients should pay attention to hypolipidemic

The main cause of death in patients with diabetes is not diabetes itself, but ASCVD complications (atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease).

70% of diabetic patients died because of this reason

ASCVD complications can be prevented, controlled, cholesterol levels in diabetic patients especially the “bad” cholesterol (low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, namely LDL-C) level, is the most predictive risk factor for future events ASCVD.

Many patients are not aware of themselves and their families, in diabetic complications, the most threat to the lives of patients is ASCVD complications about 70% of patients have been killed.

The risk of cardiovascular disease in diabetic patients 2-4 times higher than non-diabetics. Prevention Guide lipids were raised LDL cholesterol is the primary treatment goal. Reduce “bad cholesterol” (LDL-C) can significantly reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. Statins reduce “bad cholesterol” drug of choice in reducing major vascular events, such as the prevention of death, stroke and efficacy aspects of myocardial infarction has surpassed all other classes lipid lowering drugs.

Statins must be long-term eating

Many large international academic institutions have developed a comprehensive diabetes management guidelines. United States by 20 years of comprehensive diabetes management is implemented on a steady decrease of cardiovascular events in diabetes. January 2015, the American Diabetes Association announced the new treatment guidelines, more emphasis on integrated management of early diabetic patients:

1, under 40 years of age with diabetes: new guidelines made it clear that if risk factors (hypertension, smoking, overweight / obesity, LDL-C≥100mg / dL (2.6mmol / L), etc.), it is recommended to use statin therapy .

2, for over 40 years with diabetes: new guidelines made it clear that even if there is no risk factors (hypertension, smoking, overweight / obesity, LDL-C≥100mg / dL (2.6mmol / L), etc.), but also recommend using statins medication to reduce “bad cholesterol” (LDL-C).

3. Statins have long to eat, while maintaining lifestyle intervention, not in the “bad cholesterol” reduce free to stop the medication.
