Abnormally elevated cholesterol or fats (lipids) in the blood.
Dyslipidemia increases the chance of clogged arteries (atherosclerosis) and heart attacks, stroke or other circulatory concerns, especially in smokers. In adults, it's often related to obesity, unhealthy diet and lack of exercise.
Dyslipidaemia usually causes no symptoms.
Healthy diet, exercise and lipid-lowering drugs can help prevent complications.
