Educational information

Persons with diabetes have an increased CV risk, which is even further increased by atherogenic dyslipidemia. Statins and other lipid lowering therapies reduce CV risk in these patients. The effect of PCSK9 inhibitors on non-HDL-c levels and clinical events was demonstrated in patients with diabetes. This recording aims to explain the concept of dyslipidemia in diabetes patients and the results of the PCSK9 trials.
