Treating Dyslipidemia By Arresting Abnormal Lipid Metabolism And Rendering Correct Cholesterol Levels

It has been established by studies that around 1/3rd of Australians suffer from elevated bad cholesterol levels beyond the ‘normal range’.  Yes, cholesterol can be ‘good’ and ‘bad’. The good cholesterol or High-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol actually helps to remove other forms of cholesterol by absorbing it from the cells or bloodstream, and sending it to the liver where it is flushed out of your system. 

The bad cholesterol or low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol tends to block your arteries and pose risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). 

It is important to have relatively high levels of HDL and relatively low levels of LDL to form a balance between the two. Cholesterol, as a whole, helps in the development of hormones such as testosterone, oestrogen, neurotransmitters and adrenal hormones, build structure of cell membranes, promote good metabolism, contribute to the synthesis of Vitamin D, and produce bile acid which aids the body in absorbing fats and other nutrients.

What is dyslipidemia?

Dyslipidemia is a rather common condition that is characterised by abnormally elevated lipids (fats and triglycerides) in your blood, causing cholesterol to rise. It is also characterised by a low level of HDL cholesterol (the ‘good cholesterol’) and a high level of LDL cholesterol (the ‘bad’ cholesterol). The dyslipidemia definition is literally a translation of abnormally high levels of lipids in the blood. 

Lipids are technically hydrocarbon molecules that make up the structure and function of cells. They are essential for survival and are involved in a wide range of important functions such as creation of cellular structures, storage of energy, production of hormones and steroids, absorption of fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamins A, D, E and K, and brain function through lipid metabolism. Lipids typically include fats, oils, vitamins such as A, D, E and K, and triglycerides (developed when calories do not burn right away and get stored in cells). 

Too much of anything is bad and as such, abnormal lipid metabolism gives rise to dyslipidemia. This is one of the most common reasons behind several heart conditions, especially cardiovascular disease. 

Discrepancies in cholesterol levels arise due to various factors such as genetics, lack of exercise, unhealthy eating habits and diet, and obesity). 

How Is Dyslipidemia Typically Resolved At My Vital Health Solutions?

Dyslipidemia, as such, has no symptoms of its own. One might have dyslipidemia and not even know it. In fact, dyslipidemia diagnosis is often done through routine blood tests. 

However, it is worth noting that certain habits or conditions can increase one’s chances of having dyslipidemia. You are at an increased risk of it of you now to any or all of the following:

  • Cigarette smoking
  • Excessive alcohol consumption
  • Potbelly
  • Obesity
  • Consumption of fatty or oily foods on a regular basis

 

While dyslipidemia does not have any real symptoms per se, left untreated leads to conditions such as coronary artery disease (CAD) and peripheral artery disease (PAD), both of which are serious health conditions. 

CAD refers to the blockage in the arteries of the heart and PAD refers to blockage in the arteries of the legs. They manifest themselves through the following symptoms:

  • Chest pain
  • Tightness in the chest and shortness of breath
  • Severe leg pain, especially when walking or standing
  • Indigestion and heartburn
  • Nausea
  • Disturbed sleep pattern
  • Fatigue
  • Dizziness
  • Heart palpitations

 

Typical practice involves the administration of medications containing statins, which tend to do more harm than good to the body, including severe liver and muscle damage. Furthermore, cholesterol is vital for many important bodily functions and as such, straight our reducing cholesterol levels drastically is dangerous. 

Which is why Naturopath Domenic Pisanelli believes in adopting a systematic approach that aims to deduce the contributing factors behind high lipid levels. Accordingly, he creates customised dyslipidemia treatment guidelines and procedures to effectively attend to all the issues that lead to elevated cholesterol and lipid levels, and not just prescribing medications that lower cholesterol to dangerous levels.

Understanding Why Dyslipidemia Is Dangerous

As mentioned previously, the elevated lipid metabolism leads to dyslipidemia that does not technically show any symptoms per se. Gradually, it leads to health conditions such as coronary artery disease (CAD), peripheral artery disease (PAD), heart disease and cardiovascular risks. 

The high cholesterol levels result in blockages within the arterial walls and fatty deposits within the blood vessels. These blockages eventually grow, making it difficult for blood to flow through your body. 

Apart from the risk to the heart, this restriction in blood flow may lead to strokes, causing potential damage to your brain and mental health.
