This concise and heavily illustrated pocket manual surveys biochemistry and metabolism of lipids and lipoproteins; metabolic points of possible therapeutic intervention; clinical manifestations of lipid disorders, from the highly uncommon to garden-variety atherosclerosis; epidemiologic and trials evidence for the value of treating lipid disorders; treatment programs (United States and United Kingdom); and laboratory investigation of lipid disorders. A good starting point for any student, resident, or physician who feels ill-informed in this aspect of diagnosis and treatment.
