Hypolipidemia is one of the two cholesterol disorders, namely, hyperlipidemia and hypolipidemia. Cholesterol is very essential for life, in the right quantity. When the level of fat and cholesterol in the blood grows to unusually high levels it is called hyperlipidemia.

Hypolipidemia is a state where the fat level in the blood of a person falls to unusually low levels. It is also termed as low blood cholesterol. Hypolipidemia is found in various forms and in many diseases including hepatitis, cancer, liver diseases and severe malnutrition.

Hypolipidemia can be caused by a number of disorders including hyperthyroidism, malnutrition, starvation, anaemia, disorders in the absorption of food by body, various liver disorders, Tangier disease, and genetic disorders including abetalipoproteinemia and hypobetalipoproteinemia.

Testing for hypolipidemia includes examining the levels of cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood. Normal total cholesterol level in one's blood should be below 200 mg/dl.
