The critical difference between dyslipidemia and hyperlipidemia is that dyslipidemia shows high triglycerides, elevated LDL, and low HDL. In contrast, hyperlipidemia is a high concentration of fat in the blood. It is quite common for the person to have low HDL and high LDL when they have dyslipidemia. Hyperlipidemia shows your blood has too many lipids, such as cholesterol and triglycerides.

Some of the common symptoms of dyslipidemia include severe protein-energy malnutrition, malabsorption, confusion, dyspnea, and muscular or calf pain when walking. Both ailments fall under the umbrella of VLDL disorders. The most common cause of these disorders is the genetic defects in multiple genes.
