hy·per·lip·id·e·mi·a

(hī'pĕr-lip'i-dē'mē-ă),
Elevated levels of lipids in the blood plasma. There are several types of hyperlipemia. One is associated with a deficiency of δ-aminoadipic semialdehyde synthase.

hyperlipidemia

An ↑ of circulating lipids–fatty acids, TGs, and cholesterol, often linked to ↑ lipoproteins–hyperlipoproteinemia and/or ↓ degradative enzymes–eg, lipoprotein lipase. See Acquired hyperlipidemia, Familial combined hyperlipidemia.
Hyperlipidemia
Primary Dyslipidemia intimately linked to CAD
Secondary
Secondary hypercholesterolemia, seen in acute intermittent porphyria, cholestasis, hypothyroidism and pregnancy.
Secondary hypertriglyceridemia, seen in DM, acute alcohol intoxication, acute pancreatitis, gout, gram-negative sepsis, glycogen storage disease I, oral contraceptive use.
Combined hypercholesterolemia & hypertriglyceridemia, seen in nephrotic syndrome, chronic renal failure, corticosteroid therapy and immunosuppression.
Note: 30-40% of the population is sensitive to dietary cholesterol and ↑ dietary cholesterol may ↑ cholesterol in the circulation
