2. What Causes Dyslipidemia?

There are many factors that contribute to dyslipidemia. Certain behaviors and lifestyle choices can be causative. The most common of those are smoking, a lack of exercise and an unhealthy diet.

Genetics also play a role in its development. In cases of primary dyslipidemia, people are unable to properly produce lipids or regulate fat levels within their bodies. This can produce both abnormally high and low lipid levels.
