The association of repeatedly measured low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and all-cause mortality and cardiovascular disease in dyslipidemic patients: A longitudinal study
Highlights From the study
- Very low LDL cholesterol is associated with increased all-cause mortality.
- Very low LDL cholesterol is not associated with decreased cardiovascular disease
- These associations were more obvious among high-risk patients in atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) risk.
Very low LDL cholesterol is associated with increased all-cause mortality but not statistically associated with cardiovascular disease incidence among dyslipidemic patients, regardless of risk. When patients were stratified according to ASCVD risk, this association was more obvious among high-risk patients.
