  • Concentration
  • The concentration of these other components, which may cause atheroma, is known as the non-HDL-C. This is now preferred to LDL-C as a secondary marker as it has been shown to be a better predictor and it is more easily calculated. (wikipedia.org)
  • dietary
  • Dietary cholesterol does not appear to have a significant effect on blood cholesterol and thus recommendations about its consumption may not be needed. (wikipedia.org)
  • Examples of foods containing a high proportion of saturated fat include animal fat products such as cream, cheese, butter, other whole milk dairy products and fatty meats which also contain dietary cholesterol. (wikipedia.org)
  • raises
  • A study by the US Department of Agriculture showed that vaccenic acid raises both HDL and LDL cholesterol, whereas industrial trans fats only raise LDL without any beneficial effect on HDL. (wikipedia.org)
  • increases
  • Epidemiologic studies indicate that lifestyle factors related to westernization are associated with increases in breast cancer incidence in Asian countries, which may be explained by higher animal fat consumption, lower levels of physical activity, obesity, early menarche, and changing reproductive profiles, that is, fewer full-term pregnancies and increased age at the first full-term pregnancy ( 3 , 4 ). (aacrjournals.org)
  • Clinical trials have shown apabetalone increases ApoA-I and HDL. (wikipedia.org)
  • outcomes
  • Prospective associations of circulating adipocyte fatty acid-binding protein levels with risks of renal outcomes and mortality in type 2 diabetes. (bioportfolio.com)
  • improves
  • The 10% solution prevents this condition, thus improving capillary circulation , which improves energy level, alertness , and sleep patterns . (kurzweilai.net)
  • fats
  • In healthy individuals, about 30% of blood cholesterol, along with other fats, is carried by HDL. (wikipedia.org)
  • Trans fats levels can be reduced or eliminated using saturated fats such as lard, palm oil or fully hydrogenated fats, or by using interesterified fat. (wikipedia.org)
  • mortality
  • Niacin (nicotinic acid, vitamin B 3 ) has been used to increase HDL levels since the 1970s, based on studies that showed a mortality benefit. (aafp.org)
  • Although niacin can increase HDL levels by an average of 21.4%, it does not affect all-cause mortality rates. (aafp.org)
  • liver
  • 5 ) identify a syndrome characterized by the association of fatty liver and lobular hepatitis and chronically elevated alanine aminotransferase plasma levels in patients with negligible alcohol intake. (diabetesjournals.org)
  • HDL transports cholesterol mostly to the liver or steroidogenic organs such as adrenals, ovary, and testes by both direct and indirect pathways. (wikipedia.org)
  • vascular
  • Evaluation of Vascular Remodeling in Carotid Atherosclerosis Among Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus Patients Using High-Frequency Ultrasonography Combined with Serum Resistin. (bioportfolio.com)
  • blood
  • Recent studies have shown that keeping blood sugar levels within normal range reduces chances of developing at least some of the complications associated with having diabetes 5-7 . (rrh.org.au)
  • Consequently, an important aspect of type 2 diabetes treatment is lowering blood sugar levels through diet, exercise, and medications 8-12 . (rrh.org.au)
  • Studies suggest that when smokers wish to achieve a stimulating effect, they take short quick puffs, which produce a low level of blood nicotine. (wikipedia.org)
  • Pharmacological research has indicated a number of therapeutic qualities of jiaogulan, such as lowering cholesterol and high blood pressure, and strengthening immunity. (wikipedia.org)
  • Medications for diabetes, high cholesterol, or high blood pressure are sometimes used. (wikipedia.org)
  • Since estrogen circulating in the blood can negatively feedback to reduce circulating levels of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH), most oral contraceptives contain ethinylestradiol, along with a progestin (synthetic progestogen). (wikipedia.org)
  • postmenopausal women
  • The increased risk in postmenopausal women is explained possibly due to increased level of circulating estradiol and reduced level of sex hormone-binding globulin by the conversion of androgens to estrone in adipose tissue ( 5 , 7 ). (aacrjournals.org)
  • Increase
  • Cholesterol should be reduced to less than 300 mg/day, thus the avoidance of animal products and to increase fiber intake to more than 20 g/day with 6g of soluble fiber/day. (wikipedia.org)
  • citation needed] Exercise should be promoted, as it can increase HDL. (wikipedia.org)
  • higher
  • Persons with higher CRP levels tended to have more prevalent and incident lacunar infarcts. (ahajournals.org)
  • Several studies have suggested that high insulin might be causally linked to breast cancer and that higher insulin-like growth factor-I levels may predict the development of breast cancer ( 15 - 19 ). (aacrjournals.org)
  • Arterial levels for drugs are generally higher than venous levels because of extraction while passing through tissues. (wikipedia.org)
  • investigate
  • The goal of this study was to investigate the association between HDL-C with breast cancer risk, stratifying by menopausal status, and body mass index. (aacrjournals.org)
  • lower
  • Lower PPAR-alpha expression levels are found in small and large intestine, skeletal muscle and adrenal gland. (wikipedia.org)
  • plasma
  • Peak plasma levels of acebutolol are reached within 2 to 2.5 hours after oral dosing. (wikipedia.org)
  • Within the APOA5 gene, a couple of important SNPs with a widely confirmed effect on plasma TG levels as well as rare mutations have been described. (wikipedia.org)
