• 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)

  • statins
  • Statins are particularly well suited for lowering LDL, the cholesterol with the strongest links to vascular diseases. (wikipedia.org)
  • 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)

  • triglyceride
  • 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)
  • bile acid
  • 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)
  • Bile acid sequestrants may also be used to treat hyperthyroidism as an adjunct therapy. (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)

  • pituitary
  • 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)

  • According to the FDA, the risk of myopathy during rosuvastatin therapy may be increased in Asian Americans: Because Asians appear to process the drug differently, half the standard dose can have the same cholesterol-lowering benefit in those patients, though a full dose could increase the risk of side-effects, a study by the drug's manufacturer, AstraZeneca, indicated. (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)
