Rasmussen College Hypercholesterolemia Development and Treatment Discussion This is just a discussion post so a paragraph or two should be sufficient enough. I attached details in phot. Thank you! Module 03 Discussion – Blood Pressure
Hypercholesterolemia (high cholesterol levels in the blood) is
associated with various cardiovascular diseases such as
atherosclerosis, stroke, and myocardial infarction. Research
how hypercholesterolemia develops, as well as its
complications.
A common treatment for hypercholesterolemia is a class of
drugs called statins. In your post, address the following
questions:
• Are statins the best course of treatment for
hypercholesterolemia in adults? Why or why not?
• Should they be prescribed to adults with
hypercholesterolemia with no evidence of heart
disease?
• Should teenagers be prescribed statins if they are
diagnosed with hypercholesterolemia? Why or why
not?
• Is there a better solution for these situations?
