However, the cost burden of HTG-related CVD in high-risk US adults on statins has not been well characterized.Abstract: CONCLUSION: In US adults on statins and at high risk for CVD, the health care costs associated with HTG are substantial.Abstract: Copyright (c) 2019 National Lipid Association.

Population sizes were estimated from the 2007-2014 National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys. Adjusted mean total annual health care costs in 2015 US dollars were estimated using the Optum Research Database. The annual total health care cost burden was estimated by multiplying the population size by the mean annual total incremental health care costs overall and within subgroups.Abstract: OBJECTIVE: We estimated the HTG-related health care cost burden among US adults with CVD or diabetes taking statin therapy.Abstract: RESULTS: There were 6.2 (95% confidence interval [CI], 5.4 - 7.1) million and 12.0 (95% CI, 11.1 - 12.9) million US adults aged >=45 years with diabetes and/or CVD on statin therapy with TG >= 150 mg/dL and TG < 150 mg/dL, respectively. The mean adjusted incremental total one-year health care costs in adults with TG >= 150 mg/dL compared with those with TG < 150 mg/dL was
