dc.description.abstractBased on current evidence, statin therapy should be offered to all patients with type 2 diabetes who are known to have coronary artery disease. [Strength of recommendation: A] For patients older than 40 years with type 2 diabetes who are not known to have cardiovascular disease, statins are recommended if other cardiovascular risk factors are present, regardless of the initial low-density lipoprotein (LDL) level, if the patient has failed to reach the target LDL goal of less than 100 mg per dL (2.6 mmol per L) by lifestyle modification for primary prevention.
