Abnormal Lipid Levels

No Record Found

Application Details :

Lipid levels that are out of balance in the blood are referred to as abnormal Lipid levels. The main Lipid types that are regularly measured and checked for abnormalities include cholesterol, triglycerides, Low-Density Lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, and High-Density Lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol. These Lipid levels in each individual have a substantial impact on their risk of developing cardiovascular diseases like heart disease and stroke. The primary lipid parameters that are generally evaluated are as follows: Total cholesterol is the total amount of LDL, HDL, and Very-Low-Density Lipoprotein (VLDL) cholesterol in the blood.Triglycerides are a form of fat that are present in the blood and are mostly derived from the fats we consume and extra calories that are not immediately needed for energy by the body.LDL cholesterol, also known as "bad cholesterol," is a type of lipoprotein that transports cholesterol from the liver to the body's cells and tissues. An increased risk of Atherosclerosis, or the buildup of fatty deposits in arteries, and cardiovascular disease is linked to high levels of LDL cholesterol. Diet: Eating a diet rich in trans and saturated fats can make LDL cholesterol levels higher.Obesity: Being obese or overweight is frequently linked to reduced HDL cholesterol and increased triglyceride levels.Physical inactivity: Unbalanced lipid levels can be caused by a lack of exercise.Genetics: Some people are predisposed genetically to have abnormal lipid levels, which can result in diseases such familial hypercholesterolemia.Smoking: Smoking can harm blood arteries and lower HDL cholesterol levels, which increases the risk of atherosclerosis.Certain medical conditions can affect lipid levels, including diabetes, hypothyroidism, renal illness, and liver disease. Reducing the risk of cardiovascular illnesses is the main objective of controlling aberrant cholesterol levels. This is frequently accomplished by making lifestyle adjustments such adopting a heart-healthy diet, exercising frequently, giving up smoking, and keeping a healthy weight. A healthcare professional may occasionally recommend medication (such as statins) to assist lower LDL cholesterol levels.It is crucial to speak with a healthcare provider if you think your lipid levels may be abnormal or if you are worried about your heart health. They can run a lipid profile test and offer you personalised advice for controlling your cholesterol levels and lowering your risk of cardiovascular disease.
