• fats
  • Knowing which fats raise LDL cholesterol and which ones don't is the first step in lowering your risk of heart disease. (ahaevents.org)
  • However, during the first seven hours after ingestion of cholesterol, as absorbed fats are being distributed around the body within extracellular water by the various lipoproteins (which transport all fats in the water outside cells), the concentrations increase. (wikipedia.org)
  • hyperglycemia
  • The most common side effects of indinavir include: Gastrointestinal disturbances (abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting) General malaise and fatigue Nephrolithiasis/urolithiasis (the formation of kidney stones), which sometimes may lead to more severe condition including kidney failure Metabolic alterations including hyperlipidemia (cholesterol or triglyceride elevations) and hyperglycemia Alterations in body shape (lipodystrophy), colloquially known as "Crix belly" Indinavir inhibits urinary nitrous oxide production and may inhibit nitric oxide production. (wikipedia.org)
  • fatty
  • Through the interaction with the phospholipid fatty-acid chains, cholesterol increases membrane packing, which both alters membrane fluidity and maintains membrane integrity so that animal cells do not need to build cell walls (like plants and most bacteria). (wikipedia.org)
  • bile acids
  • Bile acid sequestrants (resins, e.g. cholestyramine) are particularly effective for lowering LDL-C by sequestering the cholesterol-containing bile acids released into the intestine and preventing their reabsorption from the intestine. (wikipedia.org)

  • deposits
  • Xanthalesma / Xanthomas are deposits of fat/cholesterol in the eye lid. (medhelp.org)
  • Yellow deposits of cholesterol-rich fat may be seen in various places on the body such as around the eyelids (known as xanthelasma palpebrarum), the outer margin of the iris (known as arcus senilis corneae), and in the tendons of the hands, elbows, knees and feet, particularly the Achilles tendon (known as a tendon xanthoma). (wikipedia.org)
  • cell membrane
  • The unprotonated form of tomatine forms complexes with sterols such as cholesterol, which may cause disruption of cell membrane and changes in membrane permeability. (wikipedia.org)
  • The structure of the tetracyclic ring of cholesterol contributes to the fluidity of the cell membrane, as the molecule is in a trans conformation making all but the side chain of cholesterol rigid and planar. (wikipedia.org)
  • synthesis
  • At first it was thought that the synthesis of steroidal alkaloids only involved multiple steps of hydroxylation, oxidation and amination of cholesterol with arginine as the source of the incorporated nitrogen. (wikipedia.org)
  • phytosterols
  • Plants manufacture phytosterols (substances chemically similar to cholesterol), which can compete with cholesterol for reabsorption in the intestinal tract, thus potentially reducing cholesterol reabsorption. (wikipedia.org)
  • When intestinal lining cells absorb phytosterols, in place of cholesterol, they usually excrete the phytosterol molecules back into the GI tract, an important protective mechanism. (wikipedia.org)
  • derivative
  • These compounds consist of an aglycon, which is a cholesterol derivative, and a carbohydrate chain, which in the case of α-tomatine consists of two d-glucose units, a d-galactose unit, and a d-xylose unit. (wikipedia.org)
  • plasma
  • In this structural role, cholesterol also reduces the permeability of the plasma membrane to neutral solutes, hydrogen ions, and sodium ions. (wikipedia.org)
  • diet
  • Portfolio Diet is a therapeutic vegetarian diet created by Canadian researcher David Jenkins in 2003 to lower blood cholesterol. (wikipedia.org)
  • This diet emphasizes using a portfolio of foods or food components that have found to associate with cholesterol lowering to enhance this effect. (wikipedia.org)
  • David Jenkins believes including all of these foods in the diet is able to achieve better cholesterol lowering results. (wikipedia.org)
  • The study compared the effect of cholesterol lowering effect using the portfolio diet versus Lovastatin. (wikipedia.org)
  • lower
  • Just 40 minutes of aerobic exercise of moderate to vigorous intensity done three to four times a week is enough to lower both cholesterol and high blood pressure. (ahaevents.org)
  • risk
  • After fifteen years follow-up, the study confirmed the results of larger studies that reported earlier on the predictive value for heart attack of several risk factors, blood pressure, blood cholesterol level, and cigarette smoking. (wikipedia.org)
