[Lipid disorders in non-insulin dependent diabetes--principles of treatment].

Hyperlipoproteinemia is one of the main coronary risk factors. Lipid metabolism disorders occur in about 40-60% of patients with NIDDM. Hyperlipidemia in diabetics is related to diabetes control, presence of diabetic nephropathy, diet, some drugs and genetic factors. Lipid metabolism disorders in NIDDM comprise qualitative changes--usually increase of serum triglyceride concentration and decrease of HDL--cholesterol, and qualitative changes of lipoprotein composition, glycation and oxidation. The first steps of hypolipemic therapy are good control of diabetes, reduction of overweight, hypolipidemic diet, and if a goal level is not achieved--farmacotherapy. Hypolipidemic treatment should be relevant in reduction of cardiovascular diseases in diabetic patients.
