High Cholesterol And Triglyceride Levels Are Accompanied By Frequent Dizziness?
I have been feeling dizzy lately, so I checked cholesterol 176 and Triglycerid 240, is this the cause?
Hello Mr Yoseph,
Thank you for the question.
Dizziness is not a disease, but a symptom of another disease. High cholesterol and triglyceride levels do not cause definite symptoms in the body. Your triglyceride levels are in the high category. Normal levels of triglycerides <150 mg / dL. Checking blood lipid levels including triglycerides should be done in a fasting state. Triglycerides are large fat molecules, so if they clog blood vessels they can cause a decrease in regional flow to organs. If it happens to the brain it will cause a stroke, if it happens to the heart it will cause a heart attack. Not only the brain and heart, other organs in the body also experience a decrease in blood flow depending on where the blockage occurs. When blood flow in the brain decreases, this can cause symptoms such as dizziness. However, there are many causes of dizziness:
Low or sudden drop in blood pressure Allergy Stress Drinking alcoholic excessive consumption of caffeine Sleep disturbances Infections Drugs Diabetes Anemia Also read: Causes and Treatment of Triglycerides
It's a good idea to consult your complaint to a doctor, so you can find out the exact cause.
Hopefully it can answer your question. Thank you
