Hyperlipidemia: Prevention and Management Strategies

Hyperlipidemia is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease, which can lead to heart attack, stroke, and other serious health problems. There are two main types which include primary hyperlipidemia, which is caused by genetic factors, and secondary hyperlipidemia, which is caused by underlying health conditions such as diabetes, hypothyroidism, or kidney disease. Symptoms of hyperlipidemia are generally not noticeable, but it can be detected through a blood test called a lipid panel. Treatment typically involves lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise, and medications such as statins or fibrates may be prescribed to lower lipid levels.
