Date: 2009/10/28 22:36
"There has been a change in the patients we are seeing… It used to be high cholesterol and smoking. But now we see a lot of patients that have low HDL and high TG. We are much heavier now. As people get more obese, we see a lot more diabetes and the metabolic syndrome… We see these lipid profiles with a high TG and we've got to step back and think--what does that mean pathophysiologically?” – Dr. Christie Ballantyne, Professor of Medicine, Baylor.
Two exceptional events will be hosted at Fleming’s Steakhouse in Memphis, TN & the Ridgepointe Country Club in Jonesboro, AR, both offering 2.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Presided over by W. Virgil Brown MD, Professor of Medicine Emeritus at Emory. Cardiologists and PCP managing triglyceride levels in patients with diabetes and the metabolic syndrome are especially encouraged to attend.
