Obesity and dyslipidemia

Changes in lifestyle and diet have increased the prevalence of cardiovascular mortality risk at an alarming rate globally. Chronic diseases related to diet and habits such as obesity and dyslipidemias, have had a shocking growth in a short time.

It is important to emphasize that the population often presents a diagnosis that is related to overweight, obesity and various types of dyslipidemias. That is, an adult with obesity is four times more likely to get it, compared to people with normal weight. Dr. Noemí Santos, Medical Director of Landsteiner Scientific, a Mexican pharmaceutical laboratory, says that it is necessary to measure cholesterol, triglycerides, unhealthy cholesterol (LDL) and healthy cholesterol (HDL). If the triglyceride concentration is greater than 150 mg / dl, or the cholesterol is greater than 200 mg / dl, or the HDL is less than 40 mg / dl, it is necessary to go to a medical evaluation.

There may be fat deposits in the skin or tendons (xanthomas). Very high triglycerides may cause abdominal pain and pancreatitis, and it is a frequent cause of fatigue, ringing in the ears, among other discomforts "Said Dr. Santos.

Finally, the expert explained that to a large extent the increase in these diseases is linked to poor nutrition, overweight and obesity. "The key to preventing most diseases is focused on leading a healthy lifestyle, in addition to visiting the doctor on a regular basis."
