No Intervention: No self monitoring device
Standard or usual care of high LDL including lab lipid profiles after treatment with statin therapy. No device or telemedicine education will be provided
Experimental: Self Monitoring Lipid Analyzer
Self measured blood lipids using a home lipidometer, and telephone reporting of data to the clinical center.
Device: Self Monitoring Lipid Analyzer
The device is similar to a glucometer- Utilizing a lancet a small amount of blood is collected in a capillary tube and placed on a hand held monitor that records lipid values.
Other Name: Cardiochek
- LDL Level Change From Baseline [ Time Frame: baseline to 6 months ]Comparison of serum LDL level between control and intervention subjects
- Medication Compliance [ Time Frame: 6 months ]Self reported comparison of lipid medication compliance between control and intervention subjects, scale 0-4. Highest compliance value indicated by a score of 4.
- LDL Values at Two Week Interval [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]Participant in the self monitored arm reported LDL every two weeks. LDL goal for treatment was 100 mg/dl and subjects were followed every two weeks to observe mean LDL values.
