Hyperlipidaemia is an abnormal increase in the levels of fats (lipids), including cholesterol,in the blood. This may be of dietary origin or may be due to PANCREATITIS or bile system disorder or may be a dangerous familial disorder of dominant inheritance. Most people with familial hyperlipidaemia develop serious coronary artery disease before the age of 50.
HOW IS HYPERLIPIDAEMIA DIAGNOSED?
Diagnosis of Hyperlipidaemia may be done through a blood test. General physicians order for a lipid profile test for determining the HDL, LDL and triglyceride levels in blood. This test is done on fasting, meaning 9-12 hours after consumption of solid food.
HOW IS HYPERLIPIDAEMIA TREATED?
In mild cases a permanent change of diet may be all that is required to bring down the blood levels. In other cases a diet has only a limited effect and drug treatment may be required. The drugs that are used work by modifying the way that the liver handles the lipids. Sometimes a single drug is effective, in other cases a combination of drugs is required.
