In brief: Depends
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.

In brief: Maybe
Hyperlipidemias, several types, often have a genetic component.
So, a cure is often not possible. However, these disorders can be reduced by an appropriate diet and complementary exercise regimen. If not helpful alone, there are several safe, effective prescription medications. A visit to your primary doctor is a great first step toward developing an effective strategy. Good luck!
