Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Internal Medicine Volume 60, Issue 13: Topics in Statin Therapy.
The goal of this program is to provide an update on the treatment of abnormal cholesterol and to review the potential role of statin therapy in the treatment of dementia. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Use the C-reactive protein test to determine the approach to management of a patient with elevated cholesterol and indeterminate risk for a cardiovascular (CV) event.
2. Incorporate niacin into the treatment of a patient with elevated triglycerides and low high-density lipoprotein levels.
3. Employ statin therapy to lower a patient’s low-density lipoprotein (LDL) level and risk for CV events.
4. Counsel patients on nutritional strategies and eating plans to reduce elevated levels of triglycerides and LDL.
5. Consider statin therapy as a treatment option for the patient with mild to moderate Alzheimer disease.
The original programs were presented by Patrick E. McBride, MD, MPH, Professor of Medicine and Family Medicine; Associate Director, Preventive Cardiology Program; and Associate Dean for Students, University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, Madison, and Marwan N. Sabbagh, MD, Director, Banner Sun Health Research Institute; Research Professor of Neurology, University of Arizona College of Medicine, Phoenix.
