Dyslipidemia indicates abnormally elevated levels of cholesterol or lipids in the blood. It can be caused by obesity, diabetes, a sedentary lifestyle, genetics, hypothyroidism, alcohol consumption, or polycystic ovarian syndrome. The consequences of dyslipidemia are the development of peripheral arterial disease, premature atherosclerosis, and stroke. It can be treated by taking statins with other cholesterol-lowering drugs and with lifestyle modification.
