Abstract

Dyslipidemia means abnormal amount of lipids in the blood and its clinically important types include elevated total choles¬terol, elevated triglycerides, elevated low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), and decreased high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) levels. Many previous studies have re¬ported that dyslipidemia increases the risk of cardiovascular diseases [1-3]. Due to its asymptomatic nature and slow pro¬gression, it is difficult for individuals to notice or manage it. According to the 30-year follow-up study, a 10 mg/dL increase in total cholesterol was associated with 5% increase of total mortality and 9% increase of cardiovascular mortality [4]. Coronary heart disease and cerebrovascular disease caused twelve million deaths per year worldwide [5]. In South Korea, cerebrovascular disease, cardiovascular disease, and other cir-culatory diseases account for 20% of the total deaths and great disease burden as well [6,7]. However, there has not yet been a representative study that shows the prevalence of dyslipidemia in Korea.
