2,215 Possible Causes for Cholesterol Increased

  • Growth Hormone Deficiency

    […] body fat, particularly around the waistline Lipid abnormalities, particularly raised LDL cholesterol Increased levels of fibrinogen and plasminogen activator inhibitor Cardiac[] […] in rate of fracture in middle age and beyond changes in blood cholesterol concentrations (increase in LDL and decrease in HDL) excessive tiredness anxiety and depression[] […] hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) Reduced muscle mass and strength Baldness in men Reduced bone mass and osteoporosis Reduced energy Impaired concentration and memory loss Increased[]

  • Homozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia

    Increasing the daily dose of atorvastatin from 40 mg to 80 mg did not significantly improve LDL-cholesterol levels.[] (LDL-C) and increased risk of atherosclerosis, coronary heart disease, and premature death.[] In the survival benefit analysis, starting lomitapide at age 18 years and reducing LDL-cholesterol by 3.3 mmol/L from baseline would increase life expectancy by 11.2 years[]

  • Wolman Disease

    […] in response to high cholesterol production and this further leads to increased LDL-C synthesis.[] In this disease, blood cells known as macrophages become filled with cholesteryl esters, which causes increased levels of cholesterol in the blood and progressive liver disease[] The body's inability to produce cholesterol from the breakdown of these lipids leads to an increase in alternative methods of cholesterol production and higher-than-normal[]

  • Hypercholesterolemia

    […] by an increase in dietary cholesterol.[] Trans fats have been shown to reduce levels of HDL while increasing levels of LDL. LDL and total cholesterol also increases by very high fructose intake.[] Addition of 100 mg cholesterol per day to the diet increases total cholesterol with a 1.9 mg/dL increase in LDL cholesterol and a 0.4 mg/dL increase in HDL cholesterol.[]

  • Overeating

    When obesity is the result of overeating, you're also at an increased risk for certain types of cancer, gallbladder disease, high cholesterol and sleep apnea.[] […] time, like high blood pressure , high cholesterol , joint problems, and diabetes , just to name a few.[] Overeating, particularly when you overeat high-fat, high-calorie foods, can increase your risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes.[]

  • Common Cold

    High dose zinc increases hospital admissions due to genitourinary complications. J Urol 2007;177:639-43. [ PubMed abstract ] Lomaestro BM, Bailie GR.[] Zinc lowers high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol levels. J Am Med Assoc 1980;244:1960-1. [ PubMed abstract ] Johnson AR, Munoz A, Gottlieb JL, Jarrard DF.[]

  • Combined Hyperlipidemia

    Tests will show: Increased LDL cholesterol Decreased HDL cholesterol Increased triglycerides Increased apolipoprotein B100 Genetic testing is available for one type of familial[] Exams and Tests Blood tests will be done to check your levels of cholesterol and triglycerides.[] It causes high cholesterol and high blood triglycerides. Familial combined hyperlipidemia is the most common genetic disorder that increases blood fats.[]

  • Metabolic Syndrome

    Raised triglycerides and reduced HDL cholesterol increase your risk for atherosclerosis (narrowing of the arteries), which is a contributing factor in heart disease.[] […] caused an increase in HDL-cholesterol level and a decrease in lipid peroxidation in plasma patients with MetS.[] Losing weight increases HDL ("good") cholesterol and lowers LDL ("bad") cholesterol and triglycerides. Losing weight can also reduce the risk for type 2 diabetes.[]

  • Heterozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia

    Low-density-lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol decreased 55 per cent with colestipol and niacin, whereas highdensity-lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol increased.[] […] in the liver becomes esterified, the pool of free cholesterol declines, that increases the liver’s sense that it needs more cholesterol, increases the LDL receptor, decreases[] High levels of LDL cholesterol in the blood increase the risk for heart attacks and heart disease.[]

  • Vitamin D Deficiency

    Under Medicare, there was an 83-fold increase from 2000 to 2010, to 8.7 million tests last year, at 40 apiece.[] It's Medicare's fifth most common test, just after cholesterol levels and ahead of blood sugar, urinary tract infections and prostate cancer screening.[]
