The Philippine Heart Association, the Philippine Lipid and Atherosclerosis Society, and the Philippine Society of Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism, collaborated to develop the 2015 Clinical Practice Guidelines for the Management of Dyslipidemia in the Philippines (2015 CPG). The main objective for this document is to develop clinical guidelines in the management of Filipino patients who are diagnosed with elevated cholesterol.

The physician may employ the recommendations confidently in caring for most patients; however, this CPG is meant to define practices that meet the needs of patients in most circumstances. The ultimate decision must be made by the Filipino physician and patient together, and should not be a replacement for clinical judgment.
