Information about Hyperlipidemia
Author(s): Shruti Singh and Virginia Paul
Abstract: Hyperlipidemia is abnormally high levels of fats in the blood. The two major types of lipids found in the blood are triglycerides and cholesterol. In the United States, more than 100 million, or roughly 53% of adults, have elevated LDL-C levels. Yet, fewer than 50% of patients with high LDL-C receive treatment to reduce their levels. A heart healthy diet includes minimizing the intake of saturated fat, trans fats, and dietary cholesterol, and consuming a variety of whole fruits and vegetables, plenty of fiber, lots of water, and whole grain foods. People who are overweight or have obesity are also at greater risk of developing hyperlipidemia and heart disease. Doctors screen for hyperlipidemia using a lipid profile blood test.
