Dr. Lonna Larsh answered:

Is there a cure for hyperlipidemia?

Depends

Diet
If the hyperlipidemia is fairly mild, weight loss, diet and exercise can cure it. If it is severe, particularly if you have a genetic predisposition, then it cannot be cured. In that case, diet, exercise, and weight control are still very important to help control the hyperlipidemia, and supplements can play a role as well. Medication is often necessary however.

What are the tests for hyperlipidemia?

Many possibilities

Hyperlipidemia
There are many lipid tests available, but the strongest evidence indicates that a total cholesterol and an HDL (good cholesterol) is a good start, and this can be done without fasting. A standard lipid panel is another option, and includes these two plus triglycerides and LDL (bad cholesterol) levels, and requires at least an 8-hr fast.
