Answer

See the list below:

  • Provide outpatient care at regular intervals, especially clinical evaluation, lipid profile assessment, and follow-up evaluations for complications (such as coronary heart disease).

  • Monitor patients frequently to ascertain the effectiveness of medical treatment and to determine whether complications are arising from drug therapy. For example, monitor liver function tests and eye function when treating patients with lipid-lowering agents.
