DLM: Hypertension (2001)
The ADA 2001 Hyperlipidemia MNT Evidence-based guide for practice was originally published in a compact disk (CD) format. This 2001 project was published to the online Evidence Analysis Library for the benefit of ADA members, even though it does not follow the current online format and may be missing some of the components (all of the components of current evidence analysis include: question, conclusion, grade, search plan and results, evidence summary, overview table, worksheets, and quality check lists.)
This project was updated. Click here to view the online ADA Disorders of Lipid Metabolism Evidence-based Nutrition Practice Guideline that was published to the ADA Evidence Analysis Library in August 2005.
