Hyperlipidemia

Professor Pam Taub

Despite great advances in treatment, cardiovascular disease continues to be the number one cause of death worldwide. Cardiovascular disease encompasses heart attack, stroke, and congestive heart failure. These conditions are preventable with both medication and lifestyle therapy. One of the most important factors in reducing cardiovascular risk is lowering bad cholesterol (LDL). This lecture focuses on both medical and lifestyle approaches to lowering LDL and cardiac risk.
