  • xanthoma
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • serum
  • Retesting a fasted serum sample and a thorough health work-up to rule out other diseases will eliminate most cases of hyperlipidemia … unless the dog in question in a schnauzer. (petmd.com)
  • Over a period of decades, elevated serum cholesterol contributes to formation of atheromatous plaques in the arteries. (wikipedia.org)
  • clinical
  • What Is the Clinical Definition of Hyperlipidemia NOS? (reference.com)
  • Some dogs with hyperlipidemia have no clinical signs while others become quite sick. (petmd.com)
  • V-BID generally refers to health insurers' efforts to structure enrollee cost-sharing and other health plan design elements to encourage enrollees to consume high-value clinical services - those that have the greatest potential to positively impact enrollee health. (wikipedia.org)
  • Much like VBBD and benefit-based copays, V-BID is built on the principle of lowering or removing financial barriers to essential, high-value clinical services. (wikipedia.org)
  • obese
  • It is well recognized that obese women are at increased risk of preeclampsia and that women who have never been pregnant are at higher risk of preeclampsia than women who have had children in the past. (wikipedia.org)
  • For mothers, impaired glucose tolerance and hyperlipidemia are more common among obese mothers. (wikipedia.org)
  • Deficiency
  • Nandrolone esters have also more recently been proposed for the treatment of androgen deficiency in men due to favorable properties including their high ratio of anabolic to androgenic effect and consequent much lower risk of prostate enlargement, prostate cancer, and scalp hair loss relative to testosterone. (wikipedia.org)
  • liver
  • Cholesterol is a waxy substance made in the liver and found in certain foods like dairy products, eggs and meat. (kobo.com)
  • Human PPAR-alpha seems to be expressed more equally among various tissues, with high expression in liver, intestine, heart, and kidney. (wikipedia.org)
  • The liver preferentially excretes plant sterols over cholesterol. (wikipedia.org)
  • insulin
  • Insulin resistance occurs when there is plenty of insulin made by the pancreas (it is functioning normally and making plenty of insulin), but the cells of the body are resistant to its action which results in the blood sugar being too high. (endocrineweb.com)
  • The stimulus for insulin secretion is a HIGH blood glucose. (endocrineweb.com)
  • Hyperinsulinemia/ insulin resistance-development of high level of insulin in blood. (wikipedia.org)
  • People
  • It is one of two types of HRT for transgender and transsexual people (the other being female-to-male) and is predominantly used to treat transgender women. (wikipedia.org)
  • Prior to gender confirmation surgery, dosages of estrogen for transgender people are often higher than replacement dosages used for cisgender women. (wikipedia.org)
  • hyperlipoproteinemia
  • Hyperlipoproteinemia type II, by far the most common form, is further classified into types IIa and IIb, depending mainly on whether elevation in the triglyceride level occurs in addition to LDL cholesterol. (wikipedia.org)
  • markedly
  • Patients have markedly reduced whole-body cholesterol biosynthesis associated with suppressed hepatic, ileal, and mononuclear leukocyte hydroxymethylglutaryl-coenzyme A reductase (HMG-CoA reductase), the rate-controlling enzyme in the cholesterol biosynthetic pathway. (wikipedia.org)
  • sterols
  • fewer than 5% of plant sterols are absorbed compared to approximately 40% of cholesterol absorbed. (wikipedia.org)
  • The disorder is treated by strictly reducing the intake of foods rich in plant sterols (e.g., vegetable oils, olives and avocados). (wikipedia.org)
  • Fibrates
  • They are occasionally used as an adjunct to the statins as an alternative to the fibrates (another major group of cholesterol-lowering drugs), which are thought to increase the risk of rhabdomyolysis when used with statins. (wikipedia.org)
  • lower
  • By reducing barriers to high-value treatments (through lower costs to patients) and discouraging low-value treatments (through higher costs to patients), V-BID plans may achieve improved health outcomes at any level of health care expenditure. (wikipedia.org)
  • V-BID plans may create disincentives as well, such as high cost-sharing, for health choices that may be unnecessary or repetitive, or when the same outcome can be achieved at a lower cost. (wikipedia.org)
  • heart
  • Hyperlipidemia is treatable and may be improved with a healthy diet and regular exercise, note the American Heart Association and American Academy of Family Physicians. (reference.com)
  • include
  • 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)
  • usually
  • Adequately controlling the primary problem in these cases will usually take care of the hyperlipidemia as well. (petmd.com)
  • Usually used to treat growth hormone-secreting tumors, octreotide (brand names: Sandostatin LAR), lanreotide (brand name: Somatuline), and pegvisomant (brand name: Somavert) can reduce the size of your pituitary tumor by decreasing growth hormone production (octreotide and lanreotide) or blocking its action (pegvisomant). (endocrineweb.com)
  • intake
  • 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)
  • normal
  • 10 The hormonal imbalances behind PCOS put women at higher-than-normal risk for a wide range of well beyond the reproductive system. (endocrineweb.com)
  • known
  • Papillary thyroid cancer is treated, in part, by surgically removing the thyroid gland, a procedure known as a thyroidectomy. (endocrineweb.com)
  • decrease
  • Interestingly, the plasma PCSK9 concentration is higher in women compared to men, and the PCSK9 concentrations decrease with age in men but increasein women, suggesting that estrogen level most likely plays a role. (wikipedia.org)
  • concentrations
  • 11 For DEET, higher concentrations aren't any more effective according to research by Consumer Reports, but have been associated with rashes, disorientation, and seizures. (endocrineweb.com)
