U.S. researchers say cardiovascular disease patients may need to do a better job controlling blood lipid levels. University of California Irvine Heart Disease Prevention Program researchers analyzed data from the nearly 3,000 adults older than 20 who participated in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey in 2003 to 2004. The study, reported in the American Heart Journal, found 37 percent with heart and vascular system diseases had reached recommended levels of low-density...
