Lipidology

Lipidology

Lipidology is the scientific study of lipids, including fatty acids and derivatives. These organic molecules are crucial for cell structure, energy storage, but excessive accumulation can lead to health issues like cardiovascular disease. Lipid disorders, studied in lipidology, encompass hypercholesterolemia, hypertriglyceridemia, hyperlipoproteinemia, hyperchylomicronemia, and familial hypercholesterolemia, often associated with conditions like diabetes mellitus.
