The term Hyperlipidaemia is used for defining a medical problem where there is too much elevation of the lipids or the lipoproteins that are found in the blood. It is also called hyperlipoproteinemia, or hyperlipidaemia. There are a series of types of this disease. Symptoms usually include pancreas problems, Xanthelasma, arcus senilis, tendon xanthomas, etc.
HOW IS HYPERLIPIDAEMIA DIAGNOSED?
A General Physician/Homeopathic/Ayurvedic Doctor can easily diagnose Hyperlipidaemia by way of conducting a blood test called a lipid profile. The cause of Hyperlipidaemia is either genetic or poor diet. Other causes of Hyperlipidaemia may include excessive drinking, obesity, kidney disease, smoking, diabetes, unhealthy lifestyle and many more.
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.
