According to the 2013 AHA/ACC Lifestyle Management Guidelines, adults (>21 years of age) are recommended to use a high dose statin (daily dose lowers LDL0C by approximately >50%) if any of the following criteria are met:

  1. Clinical ASCVD*
  2. LDL-C ≥190 mg/dL**
  3. Diabetic, age 40-75 years old, with an LDL-C of 70-189 mg/dL, and an estimated ASCVD risk of ≥7.5%
  4. Non-diabetic, age 40-75 years old, with and LDL-C of 70-189, with an estimated ASCVD risk of ≥7.5%

*Clinical ASCVD includes acute coronary syndrome, or a history of myocardial infarction, stable or unstable angina, coronary or other arterial revascularization, stroke, transient ischemic attack, or peripheral arterial disease presumed to be of atherosclerotic origin.

** Consider LDL-C-lowering non-statin therapy to further reduce LDL-C

  1. Age >75 OR if not candidate for high-intensity statin
  2. Diabetic, age 40-75 years old, with an LDL-C of 70-189 mg/dL, and an estimated ASCVD risk of <7.5%
