Hi, my name's Dr Warrick Bishop and I'm a cardiologist. I'd like to tell you a little bit about the latest lipid guidelines.
Well, really, why we bother about guidelines. You probably have been subject to fasting bloods and getting checks done and measuring your cholesterol and all those things. Well, why do we bother doing it? It's because as new research is done, new trials are performed and conclusions are reached, we're finding that the benefit to lowering cholesterol and people at very high-risk is being reinforced and we're setting lower and lower goals. So we're looking more and more closely at measuring people's cholesterol to make sure we're getting them to those levels. It's really important to understand that we're looking to try and reduce risk and sometimes even get plaque regression.
If you're after more information, I've done a podcast below on the very topic. Please enjoy it. I wish you the very best. Do get your lipids checked. Do keep across those sort of things. I wish you the best of health and don't die from a heart attack. Goodbye.
