Age is the most significant risk factor for ASCVD. However, the risks and benefits of statins must be carefully considered in older populations, especially those with health problems.
Ten-year global risk assessment for ASCVD or coronary heart disease should be performed for individuals identified at metabolic risk to determine targets of therapy for reduction of apolipoprotein B-containing lipoproteins.
In contrast, there was no difference in MACE risk between the dapagliflozin and placebo groups in patients with no prior MI, even if they had established ASCVD.

For patients in whom ASCVD predominates, a GLP-1 receptor agonist with proven CVD benefit or SGL2 inhibitor with proven CVD benefit are beneficial provided kidney function is adequate?
