Time of Talk

45 minutes


This webinar will review the National Lipid Association recommendations for dietary modifications intended to lower levels of atherogenic cholesterol [low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) and non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (non-HDL-C)], with an emphasis on dietary adjuncts to a diet low in saturated fats, trans fats, and cholesterol.

Learning Objectives

  1. Review lipids and lipoproteins and their relationship to atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) risk.
  2. Discuss genetic variants associated with altered lipoprotein profiles and their relationships to ASCVD risk.
  3. Discuss how dietary adjuncts, with or without pharmacological intervention, work to lower levels of LDL-C and non-HDL-C.
  4. Review the effects of a combining a “portfolio” of dietary strategies on circulating levels of atherogenic cholesterol.
