Background: New recommendations call for lowering LDL- < 55 mg/dL and non-HDL- C  < 85 mg/dL in very-high cardiovascular risk (VH-CVR) patients with type 2 diabetes (T2DM). This study assessed the proportion of VH-CVR diabetics currently meeting these primary and secondary lipid targets, and which therapies/phenotypes predict combined goals achievement.
