Lipid disorders are the broad term for abnormalities of cholesterol and triglycerides. A lipid disorder describes a condition in which you have high levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and fats called triglycerides.

Lipid abnormalities (high LDL cholesterol and high triglycerides) are associated with an increased risk for vascular disease, and especially heart attacks and strokes. Abnormalities in lipid disorders are a combination of:

  • genetic predisposition
  • nature of dietary intake - being overweight.
  • other diseases including diabetes, the metabolic syndrome (sometimes called the insulin resistance syndrome), underactive thyroid or the result of certain medications (such as those used for anti-rejection regimens in people who have had transplants).

There is accumulating evidence that management of cholesterol and triglyceride disorders is associated with the reduced risk for heart attacks and strokes. This is especially true in patients seen by endocrinologists who have diabetes mellitus or other problems associated with obesity.
