Hypercholesterolemia and Hyperlipidaemia

Hyperlipidemia is the presence of high levels of fats (lipids) in the blood. The two major types of lipids found in the blood are cholesterol and triglycerides. Hypercholesterolemia, also called high cholesterol, is a medical term for abnormally high levels of cholesterol in the blood.  Elevated levels of cholesterol in the blood may be an outcome of an unhealthy diet, obesity, inherited or the presence of other diseases such as type 2 diabetes. Hyperlipidemia has no symptoms, so the only way to detect it is to have your doctor perform a blood test called a lipid panel or a lipid profile. Lifestyle changes are the important aspect for managing hyperlipidemia. These changes alone may be enough to reduce the risk of complications like heart disease and stroke. Whereas hypercholesterolemia is typically due to a combination of environmental and genetic factors. Environmental factors include weight, diet, and stress. Familial hypercholesterolemia is a disorder that is passed down through families and caused by a defect on chromosome 19. It causes LDL (bad) cholesterol level to be very high. The condition begins at birth and can cause heart attacks at an early age.
