The 10th of May is observed annually as National Lipid Day for those who suffer from dyslipidemia. A rare condition characterised by an anomalous increase in the number of lipids, such as cholesterol or fat, in the blood. All sectors of life can contribute to efforts to raise awareness about dyslipidemia. You can participate by volunteering at events and educating others about the disease’s dos and don’ts. In the United States, it is more prevalent among Asian Indians than among European Caucasians.
HISTORY OF NATIONAL LIPID DAY
National Lipid Day was created by Kunjan Singh and Sanjay Suri on behalf of Zydus Cadila to raise awareness about the disease known as dyslipidemia. In April 2015, the 10th of May was designated as the annual observance date for National Lipid Day.
Dyslipidemia dates all the way back to the early 1990s. It’s a risk factor for atherosclerotic cardiovascular diseases (ASCVD). Included in this category are coronary artery disease, cerebrovascular disease, and peripheral artery disease. Although dyslipidemia is a risk factor for ASCVD, abnormal levels do not immediately necessitate the use of lipid-lowering agents. Several additional factors must also be taken into account.
Most developed nations suffer from dyslipidemias or hyperlipidemias, which indicate an increase in blood lipids. We have observed throughout the history of the disease that it is frequently induced by a person’s diet and lifestyle.
