Abstract

In this paper treatment recommendations of diabetic
dyslipidemia are presented, based on PTD guidelines.
The goal of treatment in patients with diabetes
is to decrease LDL-cholesterol level below 2.6 mmol/l
and in patients with diabetes and cardiovascular
disease below 1.8 mmol/l. Desirable values of HDL-C
is > 1.3 mmol/l in women and > 1.0 mmol/l in men,
and of triglycerides < 1.7 mmol/l. Statin is fi rst line
treatment; if targets are not reached combined therapy
with other lipid lowering drugs may be considered, but
this therapy has not been evaluated in CVD and safety
outcome studies.
