upheaval. It corresponds to an elevation of the sanguineous total lipid levels, or more exactly of
and / or of triglicéridos with respect to the
Hiperlipidemia must actively be fought since he is responsible for numerous
, mainly of
pathologies. The lipid accumulation, and mainly the increase of

takes part in the formation of
known affluent deposit: the plate of ateroma. Ateroma causes long term
by progressive invasion of the

Hiperlipidemia can have different causes. In
2% of the cases the lipídicas

95% of these hiperlipidemias are related to bad higieno -
rules. Our feeding of western type is very rich in
, whereas our organism only needs
small amount, since he himself synthesizes it at hepático level from different materials provided by the feeding: fats,
and sugars. In addition the proportion in nutritional saturated fatty acids often is unbalanced with respect to insaturados fatty acids.
The glucídico sobreconsumption, more specially of simple sugars (baker's shop, chocolates, honey, jam,
. it also takes part like
factor responsible for
lipídica anomaly that is described as hiperlipidemia "glu'cido - employee".
Other many factors related to the modern way of life are questioned. We could mention like important causes
and the tobacco. Studies that establish
correlation between aterosclerosis and tobacco consumption, with the corresponding reduction of the life expectancy exist.
The sedentarismo is also
factor that contributes to the aterogénesis. Any
exercise contributes to one better
irrigation, specially of the myocardium, developing
network of collateral circulation, and one better use of fats for
As we finished seeing in hiperlipidemia what it is questioned is the life form.
After this brief explanation on dislipidemias, we are
going to differentiate hiperlipidemias related specially to the
, of those related to the triglicéridos ones.
