Dyslipidemia Symptoms

What is Dyslipidemia?

Dyslipidemia refers to unhealthy levels of one or more kinds of lipids in your blood. Your blood has three major types of lipid:

  • Triglycerides: These come from the calories you eat but don’t burn right away. Triglycerides are stored in fat cells. They’re released as energy when you need them. 
  • Low-density lipoprotein: LDL cholesterol is a bad type of cholesterol because it can build up and form clumps or plaques in the walls of your arteries. Too much plaque in the arteries of your heart can cause a heart attack. 
  • High-density lipoprotein: HDL is good cholesterol as it helps remove LDL from your blood.

Causes and Risk Factors of Dyslipidemia

Several behaviors can lead to Dyslipidemia. They include:

  • Consumption of foods high in saturated fat and trans fat
  • Obesity and a sedentary lifestyle
  • Cigarette smoking
  • Other medical conditions that can raise your dyslipidemia risk include:
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Chronic kidney disease

Symptoms of Dyslipidemia

You may not be aware that you have dyslipidemia. High cholesterol has no obvious symptoms, like high blood pressure. It is typically detected during a routine blood test.

Dyslipidemia, however, can lead to cardiovascular disease, which can be symptomatic. Having high LDL cholesterol levels is linked with coronary artery disease, or a blockage in the arteries of your heart, as well as peripheral artery disease, or a blockage in your legs’ arteries. A CAD can eventually lead to heart attacks and chest pain. A PAD is characterized by leg pain while walking.

Management of Dyslipidemia

It is important to take steps to prevent Dyslipidemia as it is a means of lowering the risk for coronary heart disease. The following important guidelines will help lower your risk:

  • Maintaining healthy body weight, by losing weight if necessary.
  • Exercising regularly.
  • Reducing the consumption of unhealthy fats, such as those found in red meats, refined carbohydrates, full-fat dairy products, chocolate, fried foods, and chips. 
  • Reducing or avoiding alcohol consumption.
  • Avoid sitting for long periods.
  • Quitting smoking and other use of tobacco products.
  • Increasing consumption of healthy polyunsaturated fats, such as those found in nuts, legumes, seeds, fish, olive oil, and whole grains.
  • Take omega-3 oil, either as a liquid or in capsules.
  • Drinking plenty of water.
  • Eating plenty of dietary fiber from whole fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.
  • Getting at least 6 to 8 hours of sleep a night.
