230 Possible Causes for Premature Coronary Artery Disease

  • Tangier Disease

    We have documented here a clinical variant of TD in a Japanese patient who manifested corneal lipidosis and premature coronary artery disease as well as an almost complete[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] coronary artery disease (CAD).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Issues on cholesterol: diet, statins and genetics Genetic lipoprotein disorders are frequently seen in patients with premature coronary artery disease (CAD).[news-medical.net]

  • Heterozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia

    Familial hypercholesterolaemia (FH) is a relatively common inherited cause of premature coronary artery disease.[racgp.org.au] FH is usually diagnosed based on cholesterol levels, premature coronary artery disease, and family history, but there is no standard used by all physicians.[ahajournals.org] , present in up to 1 in 200 people, in which there is a life-long burden of high LDL cholesterol levels leading to increased risk of premature coronary artery disease and[globenewswire.com]

  • Hypercholesterolemia

  • Hypoalphalipoproteinemia

    Abstract Hypoalphalipoproteinemia (HA) is a common finding in patients with premature coronary artery disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract Decreased plasma high-density-lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol and apolipoprotein A-I levels have been associated with premature coronary artery disease.[nejm.org] Pharmacotherapy selected according to the dyslipidemia that accompanies the HDL-C disorder is indicated for subjects who manifest premature coronary artery disease or who[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Metabolic Syndrome

    Patients with these abnormalities are at an increased risk for premature coronary artery disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The approximate prevalence of the metabolic syndrome in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) is 50%, with a prevalence of 37% in patients with premature coronary artery[en.wikipedia.org] High prevalence of metabolic syndrome among young women with premature coronary artery disease. Coron Artery Dis. 2005 ; 16 : 37–40.[circ.ahajournals.org]

  • Essential Hypertension

    BACKGROUND: Essential hypertension reaches epidemic proportions among adults and is a significant risk factor for premature coronary artery disease [CAD] and stroke.[clinicaltrials.gov] artery disease.[clinicaltrials.gov] BPQTGs], which influence blood pressure levels in the population-at- large, and to determine if these genes are able to predict the occurrence of essential hypertension or coronary[clinicaltrials.gov]

  • Gingivitis

    In fact, it’s linked to systemic diseases like: Diabetes Respiratory disease Rheumatoid arthritis Coronary artery disease Stroke Periodontitis bacteria, according to research[arizonafamilydental.com] Periodontitis may also lead to premature birth weight, heart attack and more.[arizonafamilydental.com]

  • Hypertension
