Obesity and Atherosclerosis

This month I would like to address the issue of obesity and atherosclerosis. Obesity predisposes to diabetes, disorders of plasma lipids, and hypertension and thus to the development of atherosclerotic diseases. Previous studies of obesity with respect to morbidity have revealed that the extent of obesity is not the major determinant of obesity-related metabolic and cardiovascular diseases. Rather, it is how the fat is distributed that underlies the development of these diseases.

  IAS SEVERE FH PANEL
IAS Consensus Statement “Defining severe familial hypercholesterolaemia and the implications for clinical management: a consensus statement from the International Atherosclerosis Society Severe Familial Hypercholesterolemia Panel”

The International Atherosclerosis Society (IAS) is proud to announce the publication on the definition of severe FH and the implications for clinical management in The Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology. The IAS Severe FH Panel, made of 25 internationally renowned experts and chaired by Dr. Raul Santos, worked with the objective of characterizing the severe FH phenotype and made recommendations on how to stratify CVD risk and to whom to prescribe the novel lipid lowering treatments. These recommendations will contribute to improved daily clinical practice and better management of FH patients.

  IAS - OSLA Collaboration in the MENA Region
The IAS and OSLA are happy to announce that the second IAS-OSLA Course of the series on "Lipid Metabolism and Cardiovascular Risk" held in Muscat, Oman, on 22-26 February has been extremely successful and has attracted 35 participants from 17 countries from the MENA Region including many of the GCC countries, and Africa. As in 2015 this series of residential courses aims to increase the knowledge and experience of early- to mid-career English-speaking practicing clinicians interested in the management of lipid disorders. This unique series has also been successful in linking local, regional, and international leaders in the field of lipid management.
