What is hyperlipidemia?

Hyperlipidemia, also known as high cholesterol, occurs when there are too many lipids (fats) in the blood. Your liver produces as much cholesterol as your body needs. Smoking, drinking excess amounts of alcohol, eating foods with lots of saturated or trans fat, and not being physically active can all lead to an increase in cholesterol. Over time, having high cholesterol can cause hardened cholesterol deposits (plaque) to collect in your blood vessels, making it hard for blood to get through. This causes damage to your organs and puts you at risk for a stroke or heart attack.

Common risk factors

Hyperlipidemia can have many causes. Some common risk factors that may make you more likely to develop high cholesterol include:

• Obesity
• Family history of high cholesterol
• Poor diet
• Drinking too much alcohol
• Smoking
• Having diabetes
