High Cholesterol

Excessive levels of damaging cholesterols and other harmful lipids, often related to weight issues and poor diet, can increase the risk of numerous conditions, including heart attacks and strokes.

What are dyslipidemia and high cholesterol

A common form of dyslipidemia is hyperlipidemia (or high cholesterol). Hyperlipidemia occurs when someone has too much of certain lipids or fats in the blood. As these lipids build up inside the artery walls, harmful scar tissue and other debris thicken and harden the arteries. Doctors refer to this condition of hardening of the arteries as atherosclerosis.

What success have patients with dyslipidemia or high cholesterol found through bariatric surgery?

Recent research on the impact of weight loss surgery found that hyperlipidemia and hypercholesterolemia were improved in more than 93% of patients. Not all patients with high cholesterol may qualify for weight loss surgery, but for those that do, it can be a significant boon to their overall health.
