Understanding High Cholesterol & Triglycerides (Dyslipidemia)


High cholesterol primarily refers to elevated levels of low-density lipoproteins (LDL) in the blood, often labeled as ‘bad cholesterol’. While cholesterol is vital for building cells and certain hormones, too much LDL cholesterol can lead to a buildup in the arteries, resulting in atherosclerosis. Additionally, high levels of triglycerides, a type of fat in the blood, can further contribute to heart disease. Both high LDL and elevated triglycerides elevate the risk of heart disease and stroke, making it crucial to manage these levels effectively.
