"Dyslipedemia" refers to atypical levels of lipids in the blood. There is always fat in blood, but when its levels exceed normal limits, specialists call this “hyperlipidemia”, referring to abnormally elevated levels of lipids in the blood. The condition is called dyslipedemia because the body can no longer adjust the levels to equilibrium; the balance is broken.
- When does the condition occur? The condition develops over a long process that can begin from a young age (around 20 and above) and does not manifest in clear symptoms. Only when blood clots start occurring does the condition reveal itself. In particular, overweight children have a high risk of later suffering from this condition.
- Can treatment eliminate this condition? Once the symptoms appear, the condition is very difficult to eliminate. Treatment can only slow the deterioration of the condition as it cannot reverse conditions to original states prior to the affliction. Consequently, you need to seek treatment as soon as possible after the diagnosis in order to prevent the condition from worsening.
- Nutrition for patients of hyperlipidemia: The increase in lipids in the blood corresponds closely with diet. As a result, patients with this condition need to follow treatment regimens as specified by their doctor. And to fight this condition effectively, you need to consider your diet on a daily basis.
