Physicians have had a couple of months to study or implement new cholesterol guidelines that drop the use of low-density lipoprotein targets, and they are starting to voice their opinions on the changes. Dr. Stanley Hazen of the Cleveland Clinic said the new guidelines ignore large amounts of data on the pathophysiology of the disease process, and Dr. James de Lemos of the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center said primary care physicians may be hesitant to adopt the guidelines because they are a "massive paradigm shift that dramatically changes the approach to disease."
