Are You a High Risk Group for Hyperlipidemia?
There are two types of hyperlipidemia, primary and secondary. Primary hyperlipidemia is often caused by genetics, diet and endocrine metabolism disorders, while secondary hyperlipidemia is usually caused by obesity, diabetes or liver disease.
Please check the following 8 characteristics of people with high risk of hyperlipidemia and see if you are one of them.

Whether anyone in your family, especially in your immediate family, was found to have hyperlipidemia at a young age;
● Excessive amount of staple foods in daily diet, love of sweets, passion for high-fat and high-cholesterol foods;
● high work pressure, chronic stress and anxiety;
● obesity;
● chronic lack of exercise;
● long-term heavy smoking and alcohol consumption;
● Men over 40 years of age, or menopausal women;
● Irregular life and chronic sleep deprivation.

4 signs of high blood lipid
When your body shows the following signals, your blood viscosity (lipids) may be very high! To exaggerate a little, it is "sticky like paste", which requires extra attention.
1. Awake at night, dizzy when you wake up
People with high blood viscosity may wake up dizzy in the morning, not unlike ordinary people who wake up refreshed!

2. Squatting difficulty, squatting work chest tightness shortness of breath
Most people with sticky blood are overweight, and these people may have a hard time doing squatting and standing up, and even squatting is prone to chest tightness and shortness of breath.
If the blood is sticky, the lungs, brain and other organs will also be ischemic, causing breathing difficulties.

3. Sleepiness after lunch

Healthy people may also be sleepy after lunch, but the afternoon sleepiness caused by blood viscosity is different from it.
People with high blood viscosity are especially sleepy after lunch, and if they don't rest, they will be listless throughout the afternoon. The blood is too viscous, causing insufficient blood supply to the brain.

4. Paroxysmal blurred vision
Some middle-aged and elderly people usually do not have poor eyesight, but will occasionally have blurred vision, which may be related to blood viscosity.
When the blood viscosity is too high, the blood cannot adequately nourish the optic nerve, and the retina and optic nerve will briefly become ischemic, causing blurred vision.

How to prevent high blood viscosity?

Pay attention to the combination of meat and vegetables, coarse and fine in your daily diet. Eat more foods with high dietary fiber, high vegetable protein, high freshness, low fat, low cholesterol, low salt and low sugar.

Also cover the mouth and nose so that the patient can breathe through the mouth and/or through the nose to avoid air leakage through the mouth.

Lipid monitoring:
Frequent testing of lipid values allows timely detection of abnormalities in the body's blood lipids, so that preventive measures can be taken to combat the disease before the body shows symptoms directly.
