Cholesterol & Triglyceride Disorders
What are Cholesterol & Triglyceride Disorders?
Also known as lipid disorders that put you at risk for many health problems, including heart attack and stroke.
Cholesterol and Triglyceride Disorders are commonly known as lipid disorders. Two forms of cholesterol reside in the body: low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and high-density lipoprotein (HDL). LDL is referred to as “bad cholesterol.” This type can combine with other fats in the blood and wreak havoc (block arteries and reduce blood flow). HDL, or “good cholesterol,” protects your heart. So, too little HDL will leave one susceptible to LDL’s effects.
Triglycerides derive from the fats that one has consumed. Similar to LDL, lower levels are healthier, whereas too much is unhealthy. Saturated fats and trans fats are significant culprits of lipid disorders. Genetics, smoking, a sedentary lifestyle, and medications can also cause high cholesterol disorders.

Cholesterol and triglyceride disorders can lead to heart disease or diabetes. Also, in conjunction with certain foods, medical conditions can also affect cholesterol levels. High levels can be influenced by hypothyroidism, metabolic syndrome, Cushing’s syndrome, PCOS, and kidney disease.
A composite of medications and lifestyle alterations are common forms of treatment to lower cholesterol and triglycerides. One may also be prescribed supplements, such as Omega-3 fatty acids and Niacin. Medicines may include statins, cholesterol absorption inhibitors, bile acid sequestrates, and vibrates. The most appropriate form of treatment is changing eating habits and including or increasing exercise and fitness routines.
