    New guidelines hope to tackle high cholesterol

    Guidelines for medical practitioners to diagnose and treat high cholesterol levels were launched by the Cardiac Society Brunei Darussalam and the Ministry of Health (MoH) at the Radisson Hotel on Sunday.

    The National Hyperlipidaemia Guidelines 2022 aims to provide doctors, nurses and allied health practitioners with the tools to diagnose patients with high cholesterol levels, who should be screened, and treatments recommended to control their cholesterol levels to reduce associated risks.

    The guidelines use a risk estimation tool recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) and are based on diagnostic and treatment guidelines from major international organisations, such as the European Society of Cardiology and the American Heart Association.
