how to lower blood pressure
How To Lower Blood Pressure
  • Aerobic exercise
  • Reduce stress
  • Reduce cholesterol, sodium, high fat diet (saturated)
  • Medications
hyperlipidema high serum cholesterol
Hyperlipidema / High Serum Cholesterol
  • Definition of Cholesterol
    • A type of lipid (fat) found in animal tissues
    • This fat (Lipid) is insoluble in blood
    • It binds to proteins (lipoproteins) in order to be transported in the body
cholesterol 3 basic facts
Cholesterol: 3 basic facts
  • Provides for basic functions of the metabolic process
  • Is manufactured in the liver – non-essential
  • The body makes additional cholesterol (LDL) from saturated fats
what is so bad about having high cholesterol levels
What Is So Bad About Having High Cholesterol Levels??
  • High levels lead to a waxy, plaque build-up in the arteries, especially those near the heart.
  • The result can be increased risk ofCoronary Artery Disease (CAD)
more about plaque
More About Plaque
  • Affects all of us
  • May begin as early as 10 years of age
  • May be genetic
  • Medications??
  • Low density lipoproteins (BAD)
    • enhances plaque build up in the arteries
    • increases with a diet high in saturated and trans-fatty acids (hydrogenated products)
    • Undesirable, increases risk of CAD
  • High density lipoproteins (GOOD)
    • Offers protection from CAD
    • May remove plaque from the arteries
    • Aerobic activity will raise HDL level
    • Can be raised by consuming small amounts of alcohol daily
  • Very low density lipoproteins (VLDL)
    • undesirable and are associated with increase risk of CAD
cholesterol information
Cholesterol Information
  • Dietary Cholesterol
    • Refers to foods high in cholesterol
    • Example:
      • Shrimp
        • High in cholesterol
        • Low in fat
cholesterol information53
Cholesterol Information
  • Saturated fats
    • Can significantly raise LDL levels (“bad” cholesterol) and total serum cholesterol levels
    • Found in animal sources and by products
cholesterol information54
Cholesterol Information
  • Plants are NEVER sources of cholesterol, but can be sources of saturated fat.
    • Examples:
      • Tropical oils (palm, coconut)
      • Examples of sources: Movie popcorn, commercially baked goods
  • Ingestion of dietary cholesterol
serum cholesterol levels
Serum Cholesterol Levels
  • Desirable below 200
  • Borderline high 200-239
  • Risk for CVD 240 or >
  • Some guidelines call for desirable to be 170
high serum cholesterol 2
High Serum Cholesterol #2
  • If your cholesterol is 250, your risk of heart attack is twice that of 200
  • If your cholesterol is 300, your risk of heart attack is four times that of 200
understanding total serum cholesterol values
Understanding Total Serum Cholesterol Values
  • Knowing an individual’s total cholesterol is not always adequate when determining coronary risk
understanding cholesterol ratios
Understanding Cholesterol Ratios
  • Determine the ratio of total cholesterol to HDL’s
  • Formula: TC/HDL
  • Example: Male, TC = 190, HDL = 34 (5.4)
    • 190 divided by 34 = 5.4
  • Values equal to or greater than 5.0 for men and 4.5 for women are associated with risk.
  • 6.0 = increased risk
  • 4.0 = low risk
  • Usually, if HDL is less than 35, heart attack risk is indicated
cholesterol value examples

TC: 210 HDL: 32

Divide 210 by 32 = 6.56

6.56 : 1 ratio

Ratio is >5.0

Increased risk of CAD


TC: 220 HDL: 49

Divide 220 by 49 = 4.49

4.49 : 1 ratio

Ratio is <5.0

Low risk of CAD

Cholesterol Value Examples
cholesterol value examples60

TC: 195 HDL: 36

Divide 195 by 36 = 5.42

5.42 : 1 ratio

Ratio is >4.5

Increased risk of CAD


TC: 195 HDL: 40

Divide 195 by 40 = 4.9

4.9 : 1 ratio

Ratio is > 4.5

Increased risk of CAD

Cholesterol Value Examples
cholesterol value actual example
Cholesterol Value Actual Example
  • Female
  • TC 207 HDL 74
  • 207 divided by 74= 2.8

diabetes mellitus74
Diabetes Mellitus
  • A condition in which glucose is unable to enter the cells
  • A disease associated with problems in controlling blood glucose or blood sugar
  • The disease results when the pancreas has problems producing insulin or the body can no longer use insulin properly
  • Insulin is the “taxi” that carries sugar from the blood to the cells
blood sugar levels
Blood Sugar Levels
  • Normal blood sugar levels: 65-110
  • Hyperglycemia
    • High levels of blood sugar
    • When sugar levels remain high, over time, it damages the walls of the vessels
    • Leads to impairment of the circulatory system
    • Affects functioning of most organs
    • Problems healing (small cuts, amputations)
    • Blindness
  • Low levels of blood sugar
  • It is appropriate to give sugar to the diabetic in a hypoglycemic emergency
  • Some may experience hypoglycemia but are not diabetic
    • protein is often recommended
types of diabetes
Types of Diabetes
  • Type I: insulin dependent or juvenile onset
  • Type II: maturity or adult onset, usually non-insulin dependent
  • Gestational onset
diabetes mellitus adult onset
Diabetes Mellitus: Adult Onset
  • The pancreas does not produce enough insulin or has just forgotten how
  • Directly related to obesity
  • 90% of all cases are Type II
adult onset 2
Adult Onset #2
  • An 20% increase in body weight doubles the chances of developing diabetes
  • Example:
    • Appropriate weight = 160
    • 20% weight gain = 192
how to avoid adult onset diabetes
How To Avoid Adult Onset Diabetes
  • Control cholesterol
