  • variants
  • LCAT gene variants were determined through direct sequencing, and their relationship with HDL-C level was investigated in the Tehran lipid and glucose study (TLGS). (ac.ir)
  • Two variants of rs5923 and Q177E, with allelic frequencies of 5.87% and 4.7%, respectively, were identified in both groups, although, they were significantly higher in the low HDL subjects. (ac.ir)
  • Although the prevalence of a number of single nucleotide variants of this gene was higher in individuals with low serum HDL-C, after adjustment for confounding factors, the difference was not statistically significant. (ac.ir)
  • absorption
  • Cholesterol contributes to a variety of functions in the body such as the production of hormones which are essential for growth and reproduction, the development of cells in tissues and organs throughout the body and the absorption of nutrients from the food you eat. (requestatest.com)
  • ezetimibe is a selective inhibitor of dietary cholesterol absorption. (wikipedia.org)
  • Similar to ezetimibe, phytosterols reduce the absorption of cholesterol in the gut. (wikipedia.org)
  • profile
  • children should have a lipid profile screening at least once between the ages of 9 and 11 and then again between the ages of 17 and 21. (droplet.net.in)
  • The results of the lipid profile and other known risk factors of heart disease are considered to develop treatment and follow-up. (walkinlab.com)
  • They may differ in both their impact on the cholesterol profile and adverse effects. (wikipedia.org)
  • Clinically, the choice of an agent will depend on the patient's cholesterol profile, cardiovascular risk, and the liver and kidney functions of the patient, evaluated against the balancing of risks and benefits of the medications. (wikipedia.org)
  • coronary
  • 2 In particular, elevated cholesterol accounted for 56% of all cases of coronary heart disease (CHD) and 18% of cases of ischaemic stroke (2002 data). (bjcardio.co.uk)
  • carbohydrate
  • Figure 2: Effects of egg feeding on HDL-phospholipid class distribution during moderate carbohydrate restriction (Andersen. (blogspot.de)
  • The continuous provision of energy via dietary carbohydrate, lipid, and protein fuels, unmatched by physical activity/energy demand creates a backlog of the products of mitochondrial oxidation, a process associated with progressive mitochondrial dysfunction and insulin resistance. (wikipedia.org)
  • panels
  • Lipid panels are best avoided for up to three months following acute myocardial infarction, although cholesterol can be measured in the first 24 hours. (labcorp.com)
  • increase
  • We further investigated the effects of this intervention on HDL composition and function, hypothesizing that the phospholipid species present in egg yolk modulate HDL lipid composition to increase the cholesterol-accepting capacity of subject serum. (blogspot.de)
  • NCEP
  • In the United States, this is guided by the evidence-based guideline from the National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP) Adult Treatment Panel III (ATPIII). (wikipedia.org)

  • baseline
  • cf. figure 2 ] by mass spectrometry revealed that HDL became enriched in phosphatidylethanolamine in the EGG group, and that EGG group HDL better reflected sphingomyelin species present in the whole egg product at week 12 compared to baseline. (blogspot.de)
