A combination of statins/statin plus ezetimibe is recommended
in all adults over the age of 40 years with chronic
kidney disease (CKD) stage 3 or higher.
In adults between the ages of 18 and 39 with CKD should
be treated with statins if they have one of the following:
Known coronary artery disease (CAD), stroke or
peripheral vascular disease
Life-time risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) >30%.
Patients who are already receiving lipid-lowering therapy at the time of starting
dialysis should continue to receive these agents.
