What is dyslipidemia?

Abnormally high levels of lipids (fats) in the blood, including cholesterol and triglycerides, is also called dyslipidemia. Dyslipidemia can significantly increase a person's risk of heart attacks, strokes, and other serious problems due to fatty accumulation in the blood vessels, resulting in narrowing or obstruction.

Symptoms of dyslipidemia

  • High cholesterol levels on recent tests

  • Overweight

Questions your doctor may ask to check for dyslipidemia

Your doctor may ask these questions to diagnose dyslipidemia

  • Did you have abnormally high cholesterol levels (dyslipidemia/ hyperlipidemia) on a recent blood test?

  • Do you feel you have put on weight across your whole body (not just around the tummy)?

Treatment for dyslipidemia

To treat dyslipidemia and lower the risk of complications, doctors often recommend a combination of dietary changes, exercise, and medication to lower cholesterol.
