Dyslipidemia causing blockage of artery by plaque formation

 

Dyslipidemia means an abnormal lipid profile.

 

This implies :

  1. Raised levels of one or more of the bad lipids ( Total Cholesterol, LDL Cholesterol, VLDL Cholesterol, Triglycerides.) and or

  2. Low levels of good lipid (HDL).

  3. This also includes altered ratios of Bad (LDL, Total Cholesterol) vs. Good lipids (HDL Cholesterol).
