    In either one, I'd write : "a high level of ROS [whatever that is] normally leads to lipid peroxidation and consequently membrane damage." as the best and shortest way to write it. Your variation just made it sound incorrect in English, since 'consequently' is a shorter way to say "...will occur as a consequence." or "...will occur as a result." or "will result in membrane damage." -- which would be the more normal ways to express the end of the sentence. You're welcome.
