ABSTRACT
A rational approach to the therapy in atherosclerosis has been explained. It is based on analysis of serum lipids and lipoprotein electrophoretic patterns. One can then base therapy on the knowledge that a patient has (1) mixed elevations of lipids due to triglyceride and cholesterol (treated with low carbohydrate, low fat diet supplemented with vegetable oils as well as the various anticholesterol drugs), (2) hyperglyceridemia (treated with carbohydrate restriction and saturated fat reduction with supplementation of vegetable oils and intermittent parenteral heparin injections), (3) normal lipids but abnormal lipoprotein electrophoretic pattern (treated with heparin or estrogens), (4) hypereholesterolemia (treated with low fat diets supplemented with vegetable oils, along with various anticholesterol medications) or (5) elevated lipids with a normal electrophoretic pattern (treated like (1)). Certainly this type of approach is based on more scientific fact than is the indiscriminate use of diet and medication.
