Abnormal lipid levels are known as dyslipidemia, which increases the likelihood of various health issues.
High cholesterol levels mean the fatty deposits are very likely to build-up along the artery walls.
This build-up of cholesterol can restrict blood flow to the heart, brain, and other areas of the body.
As a consequence, it increases the chances of developing angina (i.e. chest pain), a heart attack, stroke, and peripheral arterial disease.
