Dyslipidemia: Causes, Symptoms, and Management for Better Heart Health

Dyslipidemia refers to an imbalance in the levels of lipids, such as cholesterol and triglycerides, in the bloodstream. These lipids play a vital role in various bodily functions, but an excess or deficiency can lead to health problems. Dyslipidemia typically involves high levels of “bad” LDL (low-density lipoprotein) cholesterol and/or low levels of “good” HDL (high-density lipoprotein) cholesterol.
