Answer

The target is an LDL-C level of 70 mg/dL or lower, a high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) level higher than 35 mg/dL, and a triglyceride level below 200 mg/dL. Diet modification, exercise, and drug therapy are indicated as per National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP) guidelines.
