The National Lipid Association (NLA) Annual Summary of Clinical Lipidology 2015 is a summary of principles important to the patient-centered evaluation, management, and care of patients with dyslipidemia. This summary is intended to be a "living document," with future annual updates based on emerging science, clinical considerations, and new NLA Position and Consensus Statements. The goal is to provide clinicians an ongoing resource that translates the latest advances in medical science toward the evaluation and treatment of patients with dyslipidemia. The 2015 NLA Annual Summary of Clinical Lipidology was founded on the principles of evidence-based medicine and is generally consistent with established national and international lipid guidelines. Topics include a general discussion of the 2014 NLA Recommendations for Patient-Centered Management of Dyslipidemia, genetics, secondary causes of dyslipidemia, biomarkers and "advanced lipid testing," medical nutrition, physical activity, obesity, pharmacotherapy, statin safety, lipid-altering drug interactions, lipoprotein apheresis, dyslipidemia in children and adolescence, dyslipidemia in older individuals, race/ethnicity, and women, health information technology and electronic medical records, as well as investigational lipid-altering drugs in development.
