In November 2013, The American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association (ACC/AHA) Task Force on Practice Guidelines released updated guidance for the treatment of blood cholesterol. The new recommendations remove treatment targets for LDL-C for the primary or secondary prevention of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) and recommend high or moderate intensity statin therapy based on patient risk factors. Four major stain benefit groups were identified and diabetics age 40 to 75 years, regardless of LDL-C level and without clinical ASCVD are one of the identified groups.
