'Fast Facts: Hyperlipidemia' is a crisp and accurate summary of lipid disorders, with clear language and illustrations. Directed at a broad range of healthcare professionals, from primary care physicians to specialists, this updated sixth edition addresses the importance of considering lipoprotein particles, not just their lipids.

The result is a clear and logical approach to the management of hyperlipidemia.
