      Take-Away Points of the Presentation

      1. New guidelines no longer recommend aiming for a "goal LDL".

      2. Patients are evaluated to see if they fit into 1 of 4 groups: History of ASCVD, LDL>190, Diabetes Mellitus, and 10 year risk score of >7.5%.

      3. If a patient is placed in one of the four groups, he/she is recommended to have a high or moderate statin dose.

      4. Use of statins in primary prevention in patients without diabetes is controversial--discussion with patients is strongly recommended.
