Abstract [en]

BACKGROUND: We assessed the extent to which the 1998 European guideline goals were reached among patients on statin treatment. DESIGN: A cross-sectional study. METHODS: A total of 683 consecutive patients on statin treatment were recruited from 48 primary healthcare centres all over Sweden. Serum lipid levels and possible goal-reaching determinants were registered. RESULTS: The treatment goal for total cholesterol was met in 55% of patients and for low-density lipoprotein cholesterol in 60% of patients. Male sex and a history of diabetes mellitus or cardiovascular disease increased the likelihood of meeting treatment goals. CONCLUSIONS: More than half of statin-treated Swedish primary care patients reached the treatment goals.
