Dyslipidemia : Classification, Screening

Dyslipidemia is an abnormal amount of lipids (e.g., triglycerides, cholesterol and/or fat phospholipids) within the blood. Dyslipidemia may be a risk factor for the event of atherosclerotic disorder (ASCVD). ASCVD includes arteriacoronaria disease, cerbrovascular disease, and peripheral artery disease. Although dyslipidemia may be a risk factor for ASCVD, abnormal levels don’t suggest that lipid lowering agents got to be started. Other factors, like comorbid conditions and lifestyle additionally to dyslipidemia, is taken into account during a cardiovascular risk assessment. In developed countries, most dyslipidemias are hyperlipidemias; that’s , an elevation of lipids within the blood. this is often often thanks to diet and lifestyle.
