more intensive lipid-lowering

You'll see even more intensive lipid-lowering...LDL less than 1.8 mmol/L for some patients.

U.S. and Canadian guidelines are both based on the premise that "lower is better"...especially for higher risk patients. The latest U.S. revision sets LDL goals even lower.

LDL goals are based on cardiac risk factors...age...blood pressure...smoking...family history...cholesterol level...etc.
