Diabetes is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease and its related morbidity and mortality. Diabetes is usually accompanied by dyslipidemia. The American Diabetes Association (ADA) strongly recommends that people with diabetes have an LDL cholesterol level less than 100 mg/dl. This measure shows the percent of people 18 to 75 years of age with a diagnosis of diabetes whose most recent LDL cholesterol test shows good control (less than 100 mg/dl), fair to poor control (greater than or equal to 100 mg/dl and less than 130 mg/dl), uncontrolled (greater than or equal to 130 mg/dl), or who were not tested in the measurement period.
