  • Overview

    Dr. Terry A. Jacobson explains to host Dr. Larry Kaskel the importance of non-HDL cholesterol reporting in lipid management. Dr. Jacobson describes additional lipid parameters that are emerging as valuable adjuncts to the standard panel, including measurements of apolipopprtoeins and LDL particle size and concentration. Specifically, Dr. Jacobson outlines the importance of non-HDL-C as a secondary goal of therapy, and the advantages of non-HDL measurements over traditional lipid parameter for the prediction of cardiovascular events. Most importantly, Dr. Jacobson provides the simple calculation for this measurement which is not yet reported on standard lipid panels, but is easily accessible from the information on these routine panels.
