Episode 221: Finally getting the cholesterol guidelines right – almost

In episode 221, James, Mike and Tina delve into the newly released 2013 ACC/AHA guideline on the treatment of blood cholesterol to reduce atherosclerotic cardiovascular risk in adults. We discuss the highlights of the guidelines and how it appears the guidelines are, low and behold, actually following the evidence. The only caveat is we felt they should have had a stronger focus on patient preferences rather than the somewhat black and white approach they took to who should get a statin. Nonetheless, we discuss how this can be done yet still be true to the guideline. At the end we all decide we are basically happy – at least on the inside.
