The Link Between Gout And High Cholesterol?
Afternoon, Permission to ask. What is the link between gout and high cholesterol?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Not infrequently, people with hyperuricemia (high uric acid in the blood) also experience hypercholesterolemia (high cholesterol in the blood). So, is there a link between these two conditions?
So far, there are still limited studies examining the relationship between hyperuricemia and hypercholesterolemia. However, many studies say that people with hyperuricemia are far more at risk of developing lipid profile disorders, namely reducing levels of good cholesterol (HDL), and increasing levels of bad cholesterol (LDL), total cholesterol, triglycerides, and apolipoprotein B. This link can be explained through several following points:
Lipid profile disorders and hypercholesterolemia are both influenced by genetic factors (hereditary) Several risk factors for both conditions are the same, for example: Obesity (especially a distended stomach) Excessive alcohol consumption Hyperuricemia can increase the production of monocyte chemoattractant protein 1 and reduce the production of adiponectin that is cause insulin resistance, thereby reducing levels of HDL However, many hyperuricemia sufferers who do not suffer from hypercholesterolemia, and vice versa. Therefore, it is thought there are still many other factors that contribute to these two things that need further investigation.
That's all our explanation. more complete, you should consult directly with a doctor or a specialist in internal medicine, yes .. It could also, to get more detailed information, you read scientific journals or medical books that can be justified.
I hope this helps.
