Current ADA Recommendations Beat ACC/AHA Lipid Guidelines

Henry N. Ginsberg, MD, Irving Professor of Medicine and Director of the Irving Institute for Clinical and Translational Research at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, endorses the current American Diabetes Association guidelines for lipid management over the 2013 American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association joint guidelines.

Even though the evidence base is not restricted to clinical trials, Dr. Ginsberg says it is important to give physicians targets to which to treat. He also discusses the use of treatments other than statins in certain patients.
