Hyperbetalipoproteinemia is an excess amount of substances composed of fat and protein, called lipoproteins, found in the blood. High levels of beta lipoproteins, also called low-density lipoproteins (LDL), is also known as high cholesterol. Hyperbetalipoproteinemia is a major risk factor for heart attack, stroke, and other cardiovascular diseases and events because this type of lipoprotein is considered “bad” cholesterol. Hyperbetalipoproteinemia and high levels of LDL cholesterol can be caused by a high-cholesterol diet and/or an inherited form of high cholesterol called familial hypercholesterolemia. Hyperbetalipoproteinemia can be managed through a healthy, low-cholesterol diet; regular exercise and healthy weight maintenance; and medications to help lower the levels of cholesterol in the blood.
