Hypercholesterolemia - Definition



Definition


Hypercholesterolemia is a metabolic disorder characterizing a high blood cholesterol level compared to the established average. Hypercholesterolemia can lead to increased risks of cardiovascular disease, notably atherosclerosis. It is possible to reduce LDL (low-density lipoprotein - a harmful type of cholesterol) levels by adopting a balanced diet and regularly exercising. It is worth noting that genetic hypercholesterolemia, also called familial hypercholesterolemia, can manifest in childhood, and in most cases requires medical treatment.
