Atorvastatin (Lipitor 20 mg/day)

Omega 3 PUFA (Omacor 2g/day)

To determine the:

Range of estimated CHD risk levels typically seen in people with type 2 diabetes in UK general practice

Proportion whose estimated ten-year CHD risk can be reduced below 15% with a 20 mg of atorvastatin or 1.8 g omega-3 PUFA/day

Degree to which atorvastatin and omega-3 PUFA in combination have additive effects

Extent to which therapy adherence can be enhanced using a simple behavioural intervention


Inclusion criteria
