  • Today, we tend to consume a lot of foods that have high levels of cholesterol, whereas the liver naturally produces some for various maintenance functions of the body. (homeopathyguide.net)
  • Hyperlipidaemia is caused by two factors: Hypoproteinemia stimulates protein synthesis in the liver, resulting in the overproduction of lipoproteins. (wikipedia.org)

  • atherosclerosis
  • High cholesterol levels can lead to hardening of the arteries , also called atherosclerosis. (medlineplus.gov)
  • The overall prognosis for these individuals is in the worst-case scenario if uncontrolled and untreated individuals may die before the age of 20, but if one seeks a prudent diet with correct medical intervention, the individual may see an increased incidence of xanthomas with each decade, and Achilles tendinitis and accelerated atherosclerosis will occur.

  • 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)
  • Since individuals with FH underlying body biochemistry is slightly different, their high cholesterol levels are less responsive to the kinds of cholesterol control methods which are usually more effective in people without FH (such as dietary modification and statin tablets). (wikipedia.org)

  • cardiovascular disease
  • 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)
