The Top 5 Causes of Hyperlipidemia
Hyperlipidemia is a common Cardiovascular Disease in life. It can bring serious harm to our body, so we must know it in time. What are the causes of hyperlipidemia? Here we list the top 5 causes.
1. Lack of physical activity or physical exercise
This is also a common cause of hyperlipidemia. Many epidemiological investigations show that the blood lipid content of mental workers who do not like sports and do not insist on physical exercise is significantly higher than that of manual workers and those who insist on physical exercise. Because when engaged in physical labor or exercise, the energy consumption of the body increases, and part of the lipid is decomposed to supply energy so as to accelerate lipid metabolism and reduce blood lipid.
2. Improper diet
This is one of the common causes of hyperlipidemia. If you eat foods rich in fat or cholesterol for a long time, of course, it will cause hyperlipidemia. In addition, if you eat too many carbohydrates and proteins, you will get more calories than you need. The excess calories will be stored in adipose tissue in the form of triglycerides, which will also cause hyperlipidemia. That is to say, if vegetarians do not pay attention to dietary regulation, they will also suffer from hyperlipidemia.
3. Influences of other diseases and drug factors
Some diseases, such as Diabetes, cholelithiasis, hypothyroidism, and Nephrotic Syndrome, can cause lipid metabolism disorders and hyperlipidemia. Long-term use of hypoglycemic drugs, glucocorticoids, diuretics, beta-blockers and oral estrogen contraceptives can also cause lipid metabolism disorders, resulting in secondary hyperlipidemia.
Generally speaking, the blood lipid content tends to increase with age. The blood lipid content of middle-aged and old people is often higher than that of young people, which may be related to the decline of endocrine gland, especially gonad function.
A small number of people with hyperlipidemia are familial, which is due to genetic defects.
Now you know the top 5 causes of hyperlipidemia. If you are a sufferer of this disease, you should take treatment as early as possible to bring it under control. If you are not, you should pay attention the above 5 aspects and take preventatives timely to prevent the disease.
