The Philippine Heart Association, the Philippine Lipid and Atherosclerosis Society, and the Philippine Society of Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism, collaborated to develop the 2015 Clinical Practice Guidelines for the Management of Dyslipidemia in the Philippines (2015 CPG). This guideline provides specific recommendations for the treatment of dyslipidemia among Filipino patients. It is actually an update of the previous guideline published 2005. I honestly did not know the existence of this guoideline until recently only. 

We physicians should always be updated on guidelines and evidence based recommendations. However, we must always treat patients depending on our best clinical judgement. Individualizing treatment based on sound evidence should always be our goal. Below is a link where you can download the file. Please share and disseminate.
