Hyperlipidemia (high blood fats) is a medical term for abnormally high levels of lipids or fats in the blood, which include cholesterol and triglycerides [6]. High levels of lipids (fats) in the blood, including cholesterol and triglycerides, is also called "hyperlipidemia" [3]. Having a high triglyceride level can increase your risk of heart disease [5]. Symptoms of hyperlipidemia may not be present but can include chest pain, fatigue, shortness of breath and abdominal pain [2]. Treatment options for hyperlipidemia include lifestyle changes such as diet modification and exercise as well as medications to lower cholesterol levels [1][4][7][8][9].
