Abstract:

Hyperlipidemia is a popular disorder and a state of body where there is elevated level of triglyceride above 200mg/dl, LDL above 160mg/dl, Total cholesterol above 200mg/dl and HDL below40mg/dl. Now it can be found on every other person, when LDL increases it travels through our blood vessels and tends to accumulate in the vessels the accumulation is not for lipids only it consists of calcium and fibrous plaque, and this scenario leads to atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis causes narrowing of blood vessels, leads to lesser blood flow to the heart results in angina pectoris and gradually heart attack. There are many marketed medicines fighting against this, but they have adverse effects like muscle toxicity.
