The most recent NNS was conducted in 2013. Overall results showed that among adults 20.0 years old and over, almost half were found to have borderline to high total cholesterol levels (47.2%), borderline to high LDL cholesterol (47.5%) while nearly three fourths (71.0%) had low HDL-cholesterol. More than one third (38.7%) had borderline to very high triglyceride level. What are the updated figures on dyslipidemia statistics based on the 6th Updating of the NNS in 2015 and/or the expanded NNS in 2019?

Good day! Based on the following Clinical Health Survey Reports:
1. 2015 report (Page 15), "Risk factors to non-communicable diseases can be classified as biological/physiologic or behavioral. Under biological risk factors are elevated blood pressure, high fasting blood glucose, dyslipidemia, and overweight/obesity; however, only data on elevated blood pressure and overweight/obesity were collected in the 2015 Updating Survey."
2. 2018 report (page 133), "Risk factors for non-communicable diseases can be classified as biological/physiologic or behavioral. Under biological risk factors are elevated blood pressure, high fasting blood glucose, dyslipidemia, and overweight/obesity; however, only data on elevated blood pressure and high fasting blood glucose are reported in this component, while overweight/obesity is reported under the Anthropometric Survey Component."

Does this mean that the latest dyslipidemia figures that are publicly available are in the 2013 NNS report? If there is internal data on dyslipidemia estimates, is it possible to release these thru FOI? Thank you.
