• diabetes
  • Anti-diabetic drug A kind of medication that helps a person with diabetes control the level of glucose (sugar) in the blood so that the body works as it should. (wikipedia.org)
  • Primary hyperlipidemia is usually due to genetic causes (such as a mutation in a receptor protein), while secondary hyperlipidemia arises due to other underlying causes such as diabetes. (wikipedia.org)
  • In addition, a prospective observational study of dyslipidemic patients with diabetes or hyperglycemia showed that bezafibrate significantly reduces haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) concentration as a function of baseline HbA1c levels, regardless of concurrent use of antidiabetic drugs. (wikipedia.org)
  • cardiovascular disease
  • Conclusion: Elevated level of Lp-PLA2 is associated with periodontal inflammation, indicating that periodontal treatment could reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease in CP subjects with hyperlipidaemia. (quintpub.com)
  • The test gives results in 25 minutes with a sensitivity down to 0.04 mg/L. The risk of developing cardiovascular disease is quantified as follows: low: hs-CRP level under 1.0 mg/L average: between 1.0 and 3.0 mg/L high: above 3.0 mg/L Normal concentration in healthy human serum is between 5 and 10 mg/L, increasing with aging. (wikipedia.org)
  • Cholesterol levels may be determined as part of health screening for health insurance or occupational health, when the external physical signs such as xanthelasma, xanthoma, arcus are noticed, symptoms of cardiovascular disease develop, or a family member has been found to have FH. (wikipedia.org)
  • mild
  • Symptoms may be mild, but patients with autoimmune pancreatitits (AIP) tend to show elevated levels of immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4) and a high rate of pancreatic stone formation. (columbiasurgery.org)
  • Higher levels are found in late pregnant women, mild inflammation and viral infections (10-40 mg/L), active inflammation, bacterial infection (40-200 mg/L), severe bacterial infections and burns (>200 mg/L). CRP is a more sensitive and accurate reflection of the acute phase response than the ESR (Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate). (wikipedia.org)
  • Mild hypoglycemia, hyperlipidemia, and hyperketosis may occur. (wikipedia.org)
  • chronic
  • Methods: Forty chronic periodontitis (CP) subjects with hyperlipidaemia (CP/HPL group), 40 systemically healthy CP subjects (CP group) and 20 systemically and periodontally healthy subjects (control group) were enrolled. (quintpub.com)
  • Other people may develop chronic pancreatitis as a result of hereditary causes, gallstones (which block the pancreatic duct outlet), autoimmune disease such as lupus, or high triglyceride levels. (columbiasurgery.org)
  • Putative beneficial effects of rosuvastatin therapy on chronic heart failure may be negated by increases in collagen turnover markers as well as a reduction in plasma coenzyme Q10 levels in patients with chronic heart failure. (wikipedia.org)
  • patients
  • The importance of plasma TG as an independent risk factor for CAD was recognized after the publication of a meta-analysis by Austin et al 19,20 in 2000, which provided support for the earlier observation that plasma TG levels predict relative risk in relatives of FCHL patients. (ahajournals.org)
  • The interesting thing about the findings in this study is that when patients have elevated homosysteine levels they are usually advised to eat more fruits and vegetables to increase their intake of folic acid and to reduce their intake of meat, which provides large amounts of methionine, the precursor of homocysteine. (proteinpower.com)
  • The results of the JUPITER trial (2008) suggested rosuvastatin may decrease the relative risk of heart attack and stroke in patients without hyperlipidemia, but with elevated levels of highly sensitive C-reactive protein. (wikipedia.org)
  • protein
  • C-reactive protein (CRP) is an annular (ring-shaped), pentameric protein found in blood plasma, whose levels rise in response to inflammation. (wikipedia.org)
  • While there is an association between increased levels of C-reactive protein and risk of developing cancer, there is no association between genetic polymorphisms influencing circulating levels of CRP and cancer risk. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is associated with hyperlipidemia more frequently than with elevated protein. (wikipedia.org)
  • statins
  • Ezetimibe is recommended as second line therapy for those intolerant of statins or unable to achieve target LDL cholesterol levels on statins alone by several major medical group practice guidelines, including the American College of Cardiology. (wikipedia.org)
  • Meta-analysis showed that rosuvastatin is able to modestly increase levels of HDL cholesterol as well, as with other statins. (wikipedia.org)
  • Heterozygous FH is normally treated with statins, bile acid sequestrants, or other lipid lowering agents that lower cholesterol levels. (wikipedia.org)
  • lower
  • As you would expect, the vegetarians had both lower LDL and lower HDL levels than the omnivores, which goes to show that if you want your HDL to go up, you've got to eat meat (or at least fat). (proteinpower.com)
  • Acetohexamide A pill taken to lower the level of glucose (sugar) in the blood. (wikipedia.org)
  • The LDL is typically above the 75th percentile, that is, 75% of the healthy population would have a lower LDL level. (wikipedia.org)
  • cause
  • Its half-life of 18 hours is constant, and therefore its level is determined by the rate of production and hence the severity of the precipitating cause. (wikipedia.org)
  • significantly
  • Results: Serum Lp-PLA2 level in the CP/HPL group and the CP group was significantly higher than in the healthy group. (quintpub.com)
  • After the results were tabulated it turns out that vegetarians have significantly increased levels of homocysteine along with decreased levels of vitamin B12. (proteinpower.com)
  • Prostacyclin/thromboxane are produced by both COX-1 and COX-2, and rofecoxib suppresses just COX-2 enzyme, so there is no reason to believe that prostacyclin levels are significantly reduced by the drug. (wikipedia.org)
  • risk
  • In a 2004 prospective cohort study on colon cancer risk associated with CRP levels, people with colon cancer had higher average CRP concentrations than people without colon cancer. (wikipedia.org)
  • liver
  • The assessment of plasma TG concentration as an independent predictor for CAD is complicated by the fact that (1) there is considerable interindividual and intraindividual variation in plasma TG levels and (2) circulating TRL are highly heterogeneous in size, density, and composition and may consist of intestinally derived apolipoprotein (apo) B-48-containing chylomicrons and chylomicron remnants, in addition to liver-derived apoB-100-containing VLDL and their remnants. (ahajournals.org)
  • Interferon alpha inhibits CRP production from liver cells which may explain the relatively low levels of CRP found during viral infections compared to bacterial infections Measuring and charting CRP values can prove useful in determining disease progress or the effectiveness of treatments. (wikipedia.org)
  • plasma
  • Rofecoxib crossed the placenta and blood-brain barrier, and took 1-3 hours to reach peak plasma concentration with an effective half-life (based on steady-state levels) of approximately 17 hours. (wikipedia.org)
