hyperlipidaemia

An abnormal increase in the levels of fats (lipids), including cholesterol, in the blood. This may be of dietary origin or may be due to PANCREATITIS or bile system disorder or may be a dangerous familial disorder of dominant inheritance. Most people with familial hyperlipidaemia develop serious coronary artery disease before the age of 50.

hyperlipidaemia

an abnormally elevated plasma lipid level. A significant risk factor for coronary artery disease (ischaemic heart disease) which can be familial or acquired (largely through lifestyle, especially high-fat diet). The condition is asymptomatic and only diagnosed by a screening blood test or following a cardiac event. While treatment requires dietary modification, newer lipid-lowering drugs (statins) have led to much better results and a reduction in morbidity and mortality. See also cholesterol, lipids.
