Reviews

From the reviews:

"This text focuses on the science of lipidology and the management of lipid disorders. Therapeutic Lipidology is intended for practicing clinicians who manage patients with dyslipidemias. … The book is well written … and geared toward advanced-level practitioners. … Overall, the material is very up-to-date and timely. … This is an excellent text for clinicians desiring a current reference on lipid metabolism and the pathophysiology of lipid disorders. … Academic medical centers should also consider purchase of this text for this same reason."
