  • Methods
  • 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)
  • levels
  • When lipids levels get too high, however, it can increase your risk of developing heart disease. (healthfully.com)
  • Elevated levels of lipids in the blood are referred to as hyperlipidemia. (healthfully.com)
  • People who are overweight or obese tend to have higher lipid levels than those at a healthy weight. (healthfully.com)
  • When blood lipid levels are high, it damages the walls of the arteries. (healthfully.com)
  • Increasing daily exercise, decreasing alcohol consumption and quitting smoking are other important steps you can take to lower lipid levels. (healthfully.com)
  • With the extension of the duration of hyperlipidemia, high levels of cerebral TC and LDL-C were shown to aggravate the deposition of Aβ, induce the secretion of VEGF, reduce the expression of tight junction protein Claudin-5 and change the permeability of blood-brain barriers to factors that could damage cerebral vessels and neurons.

  • reduce levels of certain lipids in people with homozygous sitosterolemia. (wikipedia.org)
  • The lipid hypothesis is a medical theory postulating a link between blood cholesterol levels and occurrence of heart disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • Heterozygous FH is normally treated with statins, bile acid sequestrants, or other lipid lowering agents that lower cholesterol levels. (wikipedia.org)
  • Hypolipidemic agents, or antihyperlipidemic agents, are a diverse group of pharmaceuticals that are used in the treatment of high levels of fats (lipids), such as cholesterol, in the blood (hyperlipidemia). (wikipedia.org)
  • disorder
  • It is the most commonly inherited lipid disorder, occurring in around one in 200 persons. (wikipedia.org)
  • Approximately 85% of individuals with this disorder have not been diagnosed and consequently are not receiving lipid-lowering treatments. (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)
  • With the emergence of cardiovascular disease as a major cause of death in the Western world in the middle of the 20th century, the lipid hypothesis received greater attention. (wikipedia.org)
  • inflammation
  • Since hyperlipidemia is detrimental to endothelium and is capable of eliciting systemic inflammation as reported by previous published articles[ 18 , 19 ], we therefore considered that in light of its aforementioned cardio-protective effects, metformin might be possible to further enhancing statin effects on ameliorating inflammation and improving endothelial function.

  • genetic
  • citation needed] Physicians and basic researchers classify dyslipidemias in two distinct ways: Presentation in the body (including the specific type of lipid that is increased) Underlying cause for the condition (genetic, or secondary to another condition). (wikipedia.org)
  • chronic
  • Other causes of hyperlipidemia include certain medications, smoking, excessive alcohol use, lack of exercise and chronic diseases, such as hypothyroidism, polycystic ovary syndrome and kidney disease. (healthfully.com)
  • diet
  • The first step in treating hyperlipidemia is making various diet and lifestyle changes. (healthfully.com)
  • In apoE-/-mice on regular chow or high-fat diet, an atherosclerotic mouse model induced by heperlipidemia, we found that the peak concentration of serum lipids was showed four or eight hours later in apoE-/- mice, compared to C57BL/6J mice. (biomedcentral.com)
  • profile
  • The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the efficacy of XueZhiKang to improve plasma lipid profile, as compared to placebo, in outpatients with hyperlipidemia. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Lipid Profile is part of many routine health screening checks to quantify the cardiac risk of a person. (medindia.net)
  • protein
  • It is the densest because it contains the highest proportion of protein to lipids. (wikipedia.org)
  • This pathway is significantly less effective than the first, which is necessary for lipid mobilization in response to cyclic AMP, which itself is provided by the activation of Gs protein-coupled receptors that promote cAMP production. (wikipedia.org)
  • Drugs
  • Synthetic ligands include the fibrate drugs, which are used to treat hyperlipidemia, and a diverse set of insecticides, herbicides, plasticizers, and organic solvents collectively referred to as peroxisome proliferators. (wikipedia.org)
  • body
  • Lipoproteins are complex particles composed of multiple proteins which transport all fat molecules (lipids) around the body within the water outside cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • contains
  • Clevidipine is formulated as a lipid emulsion in 20% soybean oil (Intralipid) and contains approximately 0.2 g of fat per mL (2.0 kcal/ml). (wikipedia.org)
