Rishabh Puri may be famous to the world as a renowned author but not many people are aware about his struggle with one of the rarest diseases- Hyperlipidemia. Hyperlipidemia is the condition in which a person’s body produces lipoproteins in excess amounts.
This Nigeria born Indian author/entrepreneur was only 6 months old when he was diagnosed with Hyperlipidemia. Then at the age of 10, the doctors discovered that there was leakage in the aortic valves of his heart. Hence he was subjected to many surgeries and regular visits to the doctors. Even though he spent most of the time in hospitals, he always had a positive outlook towards life.

After 10 months, the doctors under whom he was undergoing treatment detected some blockages in his heart. So at the age of 19, again he underwent bypass surgery. After that, life was a smooth ride for him until he met with an accident at the age of 27. He experienced pain in his hips and was diagnosed with avascular necrosis which is a condition in which there is death of bone tissue because of the lack of blood supply. With the help of his family and friends, he passed one of the toughest tests of his life successfully.
In his words, he describes that life has been a long and winding journey to recovery. Despite his health condition, he went on to complete his Masters in Business Administration from UK through distance learning. He ventured into family business at the age of 18 and has business in Nigeria, China and Dubai. Since reading and writing had always been his passion, he published his first book “Inside the heart of hope” in the year 2017.
