Abstract: 

Dear Editor: Cardiovascular disease (CVD) due to atherosclerosis is the foremost cause of premature mortality and of disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) in developed and developing countries. The associated mortality is preventable through treatment of dyslipidemia. Over half of the first CHD events and 3.4 of CHD deaths are preventable by controlling the risk factors, including diet, exercise, weight and blood pressure control; prescription of aspirin and tobacco cessation; and lowering lipids. Dyslipidemia covers the broad spectrum of lipid abnormalities. However, elevations of the total cholesterol and low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) have received the most attention. Epidemiologic data revealed that about 70 million Americans had elevated levels of LDL cholesterol between 2005 and 2008. Abnormalities in lipid components are prevalent in Iran and they are more common among men in urban areas. Urbanization, unhealthy diet and sedentary lifestyle are the underlying reasons for the high prevalence of dyslipidemia in Iran. Dyslipidemias may be related to other diseases (secondary dyslipidemias); therefore, secondary causes of abnormal lipid levels should be considered first and treated when appropriate.
