hyperlipidemia

 [hi″per-lip″i-de´me-ah]
elevated concentrations of any or all of the lipids in the blood. Called also hyperlipemia and lipemia.

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.

combined hyperlipidemia  a generic designation for a hyperlipidemia in which several classes of lipids are elevated; usually used to denote the phenotype of a type II-b hyperlipoproteinemia.
familial combined hyperlipidemia  an inherited disorder of lipoprotein metabolism manifested in adulthood as hypercholesterolemia, hypertriglyceridemia, or a combination, with elevated plasma apolipoprotein B and premature coronary atherosclerosis.
mixed hyperlipidemia  see under hyperlipemia.
remnant hyperlipidemia  a form in which the accumulated lipoproteins are normally transient intermediates, chylomicron remnants, and intermediate-density lipoproteins; a generic descriptor for the type III hyperlipoproteinemia phenotype.

hyperlipidemia

(hī′pər-lĭp′ĭ-dē′mē-ə, -lī′pĭ-)
n.
An excess of fats or lipids in the blood. Also called hyperlipemia.

hyperlipidemia

[-lip′idē′mē·ə]
Etymology: Gk, hyper + lipos, fat, haima, blood
an excess of lipids, including glycolipids, lipoproteins, and phospholipids, in the plasma. Also spelled hyperlipidaemia. See also antilipidemic.

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

li·pe·mi·a

(li-pē'mē-ă)
The presence of an abnormally high concentration of lipids in the circulating blood.
Synonym(s): hyperlipidemia, hyperlipoidemia, lipidemia, lipoidemia, lipaemia.
