When your blood has too many lipids in it, you have hyperlipidemia, which is also known as dyslipidemia or excessive cholesterol (fats). Cholesterol is produced in your liver to facilitate digestion and hormone production. However, cholesterol can also be found in meat and dairy products. Because your liver can produce all of the cholesterol you require, the cholesterol found in foods is unnecessary.
Hyperlipidemia does not cause symptoms in and of itself, but it can lead to other illnesses and symptoms. It is important to undergo high blood cholesterol treatment if it is associated with other cardiac risk factors. Adults may have the following symptoms if it leads to coronary heart disease (CHD) or atherosclerosis:
Undertaking a physical examination and asking questions regarding symptoms if hyperlipidemia is suspected is a part of heart cholesterol treatment. After that, we use advanced diagnostic processes and technologies to accurately identify the illness, inform treatment, and carefully monitor it. The following are examples of common diagnostic procedures:
Blood tests look for certain lipids, cholesterol, sugar, and protein levels in the blood that may suggest cardiac disease. A lipid panel is a single blood test used to detect cholesterol levels in the body. This can include things like:
In this condition, if your levels are high it can lead to a stroke or develop heart disease.
HDL is often called good cholesterol by medical specialists. High amounts reduce your chances of having a stroke or heart problems.
This is a form of fat that is found in the bloodstream. You may be more susceptible to heart disease if you have too much fat in your blood.
This is the total amount of LDL and HDL in your bloodstream.
The first line of defense against high cholesterol is to make lifestyle changes such as exercising and eating a balanced diet. However, if you've achieved these vital lifestyle changes but still have high cholesterol, your doctor may prescribe medicine as a part of high blood cholesterol treatment.
The prescription or combination of medications you choose is determined by a number of factors, including your unique risk factors, age, and health.
Lifestyle factors : When it comes to controlling hyperlipidemia at home, lifestyle adjustments are typically crucial. Even if you have inherited hyperlipidemia (familial mixed hyperlipidemia), lifestyle adjustments are still necessary for hyperlipidemia treatment. Self-management of hyperlipidemia with a well-balanced diet and regular exercise may assist a person lower their blood lipoprotein levels.
These modifications may be sufficient to lower your risk of heart disease and stroke.
If you're already taking drugs to treat hyperlipidemia, making lifestyle modifications can help them work better.
Medications : However, because cholesterol levels are determined in part by heredity, a healthy lifestyle may not always be adequate to lower cholesterol. Some people may need to take medicine.
Diet and lifestyle adjustments may be sufficient for some people to lower their cholesterol levels to a healthy level.
Others may require other types of cholesterol treatment. In the event that the initial line of treatment fails, the specialist may prescribe medications.
I reached out to Sri Ramakrishna Hospital for a health checkup. I assumed that everything was fine. But my doctor informed me that I have cholesterol. I was quite worried about it. But my specialist comforted me and informed me it could be controlled. Luckily as it was only in the starting stages, I was prescribed medications, and within 2 months, my levels decreased, and I am healthy like before. Thank you, Sri Ramakrishna Hospital, for your hospitality.
Firstly I would like to thank Sri Ramakrishna Hospital for providing advanced treatment for hyperlipidemia.
