Özet

Objective: Though epidemiological data suggest that an elevated triglyceride (TG) level may be a risk factor for coronary artery disease (CAD), there is still insufficient clinical evidence. This study was designed to evaluate the real-life efficacy and side effects of fibrate treatment for hypertriglyceridemia seen in a lipid clinic, as well as cardiovascular and diabetic outcomes.
