In my humble opinion, these results from the Enhance trial are from Heaven. Much of the primary care medical community has focused on one aspect of treating lipids(LDL), and missed the bigger picture. These results will really encourage Health Care providers to look at treating LDL & HDL. There are fantastic results using this type of treatment (see Arbiter 2 & 3, HATS, FATS, FATS 10 Year Follow UP, CTT, and Barter Reprint studies), and fortunately I work for the company that has the best solutions for treating beyond LDL (Niaspan, Advicor, Tricor & Simcor). So I've been very excited about what is going on at work with the launch of a new product in the lipid area(Simcor), and with this news about Vytorin.
So here is a little advice if you have heart disease, diabetes, or a family history of heart disease. Know your LDL, HDL, & Trigs. Have them ALL treated to goal. I would suggest HDL being treated to above goal. Men at least a 45 & women 55. This is an extremely simple way of viewing a very complex problem, and if you would like to talk more about it, I would love to help you understand the importance of managing this part of heart disease. For you, your family, or friends.
Hope your all doing well! Go for walk.
