What is dyslipidemia?

Dyslipidemia is a medical condition referred to as unhealthy levels of lipid fat of one or more types in the blood. There are three types of lipids in the blood which are high-density lipoprotein (HDL), low-density lipoprotein (LDL), and triglycerides. If an individual is diagnosed with this condition, it means that his/her triglyceride levels are extremely high. It also indicates that HDL levels are low. 

High HDL and triglyceride levels put the patient at high risk of experiencing heart stroke or heart attack. Hence, it is important to manage the condition on time to reduce any complications. 

Types of Dyslipidemia

The different types of dyslipidemia include:

  • Familial combined hyperlipidemia
  • Familial hypercholesterolemia and polygenic hypercholesterolemia
  • Familial hypobetalipoproteinemia

Dyslipidemia Symptoms

  • Smoking habits

  • Hypothyroidism

Dyslipidemia Diagnosis 

Dyslipidemia diagnosis begins with understanding the clinical condition of a patient including their family history. The doctor usually involves simple blood tests to check triglycerides, LDL, and HDL to identify if the levels are low or high, or are in a healthy range. Doctors recommend getting annual blood tests done as these numbers keep changing from year to year. Depending on the condition, the doctor might involve using medication to treat dyslipidemia, but if the patient is already on medication, then more tests might be recommended.

Dyslipidemia Treatment

A variety of dyslipidemia treatment options are there including measures. The condition isn’t treated unless it is serious, particularly, in certain cases where the condition is inherited. In some cases, to manage dyslipidemia, the doctor might begin by modifying the dietary habits and certain fat-soluble vitamins. One of the most common medications used to treat dyslipidemia is a statin. Statin is helpful in reducing LDL levels by construing with the production of cholesterol in the liver.

There are various types of statins that work in a different way. For instance, while some are stronger, some can be less stronger. For dyslipidemia treatment, the doctor might involve prescribing cholesterol medications which can be taken as an alternative to statin. However, it is essential to understand the pros and cons of non-statin drugs. So, one must consult and follow the instructions given by the doctor.
