Dyslipidemia is a condition in which lipid metabolism, such as neutral fat and cholesterol, is abnormal and blood levels are out of the normal range. It is a major risk factor for arteriosclerosis, and if left untreated, can lead to arteriosclerotic diseases such as cerebral infarction and myocardial infarction. Fasting blood draws indicate that LDL cholesterol is 140 ml/dL or higher, HDL cholesterol is less than 40 mg/dL, and neutral fat (TG) is 150 mg/dL or higher. For LDL cholesterol, even if it is less than 140 mg/dL, it falls within the “borderline” between 120 and 139 mg/dL.
