Exercise Management of the Person with Dyslipidaemia webinar

The definition of dyslipidaemia is a Total Chol (TC) >5.5mmol/L and/or LDL-C >2.0 mmol/L, while most treating physicians also prefer HDL> 0.9 mmol/L. Dyslipidaemia is not a clinical problem in itself but a major risk factor for CVD and other illnesses. The adult prevalence of dyslipidaemia in developed countries is estimated to be between 37% and 55%. According to US data - leading cause (over 60%) of all mortalities are due to cardiovascular disease. A recent study estimated total disease-related costs, to be mean of EUR 2498 to 4898 (USD 3229 to 6332) per patient over 6 months or EUR 5000-10,000 p.a.. Other disease-related burdens were; early retirement, hospitalization, medication costs, workdays lost, physician visits, outpatient therapy and rehabilitation.
