Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The primary endpoint is the number and percentage of subjects from each group (rosuvastatin or rosuvastatin + a compliance enhancement tool) who reached the DSAM LDL-C target goal (LDL-C < 3.0 mmol/L) after 6 months therapy (24 weeks).

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number and percentage of subjects within the DSAM LDL-C target goal after 3 months therapy
  2. Compliance with study drug assessed by tablet count data
  3. Number and percentage of subjects increasing rosuvastatin dosage from 10 mg to 20 mg at week 12
  4. Percentage change in TC, HDL-C, LDL-C, TG from week 0 to week 24
  5. Change in weight after 6 months therapy
  6. Change in waistline after 6 months therapy
