Thank you for the question.
An abnormal fat profile, namely high cholesterol and LDL levels, and low HDL in the early stages often do not cause typical symptoms. However, this condition if not treated properly, can increase your risk of experiencing various diseases, especially heart problems (such as heart attacks) and even the brain (such as stroke). Not only that, most risk factors for this condition can also increase your potential to experience other metabolic disorders, such as hypertension, diabetes, high uric acid, and so on. Therefore, this condition should be sought to find out the cause early, so that appropriate treatment can be done so that even dangerous complications can be minimized.
Various factors can cause fat profile abnormalities like you experience, such as unhealthy diet patterns, obesity, lazy exercise, smoking habits, aging, as well as other diseases, such as diabetes. Your condition should be examined directly by a doctor or internist in order to be given the right treatment according to the cause, severity, and your general health condition.
