Management of Cholesterol and Lipid Disorders
Cholesterol and lipid disorders involve too much cholesterol in the blood. If left untreated, hyperlipidemia can result in plaque buildup inside your blood vessels (atherosclerosis). This, in turn, raises the likelihood of suffering from a heart attack, stroke, coronary artery disease, or peripheral artery disease.
The main causes of hyperlipidemia include smoking, drinking alcohol, being overweight, and eating foods with high saturated fats. Diagnosis of hyperlipidemia depends on the patient’s detailed history, family history of high cholesterol, physical examination, and laboratory testing.
Keep in mind that there are no specific symptoms of hyperlipidemia. However, after a while, plaque buildup can slow down or stop blood flow to the heart or brain, leading to coronary artery disease. High cholesterol can also cause a heart attack when a plaque of cholesterol ruptures and a clot covers it, and it closes off an entire artery. This needs immediate high cholesterol treatment, depending on the diagnosis.
Our top-ranked endocrinologists at Vanguard help patients at a multidisciplinary level with the treatment of hyperlipidemia. For an early diagnosis of the treatment of hyperlipidemia and to prevent further complications, seeking help from a professional endocrinologist is recommended.
