summary

Dyslipidemia is related directly to the development and progression of coronary artery disease. Lifestyle changes, which include increased physical activity, exercise, and weight and fat loss (if needed) have profound effects on improving dyslipidemia and other lipid disorders, such as postprandial lipemia, and will result in a lower rate of coronary artery disease.
