Hypercholesterolemia and Hypocholesterolemia

Hypercholesterolemia is a condition which can be characterized by very high levels of cholesterol present in the blood. Individuals with hypercholesterolemia have a high risk of developing a form of heart disease called coronary artery disease. If cholesterol accumulates in the tendons, it results in a  characteristic growth called tendon xanthomas. Yellowish cholesterol that deposits under the skin of the eyelids are known as xanthelasmata. Hypocholesterolemia is the presence of abnormally low levels of cholesterol in the blood. Hypocholesterolemia, on the other hand, can be due to malnutrition, decreased liver function, intestinal loss, hyperthyroidism, Addison’s-like disease.
