    Disease/Condition Glossary

    Hyperlipidemia/High cholesterol: When the concentration of cholesterol (like lipids/oil/fats) in your blood is too high, this condition is called hyperlipidemia. Lipids are made naturally in our bodies and also taken from the external foods. The liver breaks down these fats for further use.  If the levels of lipids are too high, the excess fat is deposited onto the walls of our blood vessels of the heart which can lead to plaque formation within the lining of arteries leading to clogged arteries. These clogged arteries can increase the risk of stroke and heart attack.
