Surprisingly, there are no symptoms of hypercholesterolemia (high cholesterol) itself. However, chronically (long-term; several decades’ worth) elevated levels of serum cholesterol when not diagnosed can result in atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis, also known as arteriosclerotic vascular disease or ASVD, is the narrowing of the blood vessels caused by the build-up of fats such as cholesterol. The formation of fat-comprised plaques in the arteries continues to pile up, resulting in the progressive stenosis (narrowing) and ultimate occlusion (blockage) of the affected arteries.
(If you live in Florida, you might be interested in learning about our high cholesterol clinical trial in DeLand, FL.)
Hypercholesterolemia results in extra cholesterol being left in the bloodstream by low-density lipoproteins (LDLs). It is the job of the high-density lipoproteins (HDLs) to clean up the cholesterol deposits in the bloodstream. If the HDLs cannot clean up all the cholesterol left by the LDLs, the cholesterol will build up in the arteries as plaque, resulting in atherosclerosis stenosis or even occlusion.
Atherosclerosis may lead to tissue and organ ischemia (blood supply restriction). Organs and tissue that receive nutrient-rich blood via the clogged arteries suffer diminishing blood distribution, because less blood can be transferred through the arterial stenosis or blockage. Ischemia causes harm to the functioning of organs and tissues.
Hypercholesterolemia can result in the following:
- atherosclerosis, including the following:
- arterial stenosis
- arterial occlusion
- tissue and organ ischemia, resulting in the following:
- injury to organ and tissue function
Upon the ischemia-induced tissue or organ impairment, a variety of medical conditions can result, including the following: temporary ischemia of the brain (transient ischemic attack), ischemia of the heart, and ischemia of the eye.
Atherosclerosis in the brain can result in stroke. Signs and symptoms of temporary ischemia of the brain include:
- temporary loss of vision
- balance impairment
- aphasia (difficulty speaking)
- numbness or tingling in the body (usually on one side)
The organ most affected by atherosclerosis is the heart. Atherosclerosis in the heart or in a blood vessel that carries blood to the heart (coronary artery) can result in coronary heart disease and result in heart attack or cardiac muscle death. Ischemia of the heart may present in the following ways:
- chest pain
- difficulty breathing
- shortness of breath
- rapid or irregular heartbeats
- extreme anxiety
- indigestion or heartburn
- pain or discomfort in areas in the upper body, including the arms, back, stomach, left shoulder, jaw or neck
- cold sweat
- extreme weakness
Ischemia of the eye may result in temporary loss of vision.
Familial hypercholesterolemia known as type IIa hyperlipoproteinemia may be associated with the following signs and symptoms:
- xanthomata (deposits of yellowish material containing cholesterol)
- xanthelasma palpebrarum (yellowish patches under the skin around the eyelids)
- arcus senilis (gray or white discoloring of the eye’s cornea.
A form of hypercholesterolemia known as type III hyperlipidemia may be associated with the following signs and symptoms:
- xanthomata (deposits of yellowish material containing cholesterol) in the palms
- xanthomata in the elbows
- xanthomata in the knees
If you experience any of the above symptoms, consult your health care provider. The risk of hypercholesterolemia is increased in those who are obese, maintain unhealthy diets, and have genetic predispositions to hypercholesterolemia. There are medications available for those with high cholesterol. Ways we can all treat and prevent high cholesterol:
- engaging in physical exercise
- maintaining a healthy body weight
- eating nutritious and low fat foods

Have other people told you that your voice is very soft or that you sound hoarse? If there has been a change in your voice you should see your doctor about whether it could be Parkinson's disease. Sometimes you might think other people are losing their hearing, when really you are speaking more softly.
What is normal?
A chest cold or other virus can cause your voice to sound different, but you should go back to sounding the same when you get over your cough or cold.
Have you been told that you have a serious, depressed or mad look on your face, even when you are not in a bad mood? This is often called facial masking. If so, you should ask your doctor about Parkinson's disease.
What is normal?
Some medicines can cause you to have the same type of serious or staring look, but you would go back to the way you were after you stopped the medication.
Dizziness or Fainting
Do you notice that you often feel dizzy when you stand up out of a chair? Feeling dizzy or fainting can be a sign of low blood pressure and can be linked to Parkinson's disease (PD).
What is normal?
Everyone has had a time when they stood up and felt dizzy, but if it happens on a regular basis you should see your doctor.
Stooping or Hunching Over
Are you not standing up as straight as you used to? If you or your family or friends notice that you seem to be stooping, leaning or slouching when you stand, it could be a sign of Parkinson's disease (PD).
What is normal?
If you have pain from an injury or if you are sick, it might cause you to stand crookedly. Also, a problem with your bones can make you hunch over.
Qui ne devrait pas se faire vacciner contre la grippe?
Les vaccins antigrippaux donnés par injection ne devraient pas être administré aux:
- Personnes qui ont eu une réaction allergique après une dose précédente de vaccin antigrippal
- Personnes qui ont présenté un syndrome de Guillain-Barré dans les 6 semaines suivant une dose de vaccin antigrippal
Le vaccin antigrippal vivant atténué (VVAI), donné par voie nasale, ne devrait pas être administré aux:
- Enfants de moins de 24 mois
- Personnes souffrant d’asthme grave
- Femmes enceintes
- Personnes qui ont un système immunitaire affaibli
IMPORTANT: Les personnes présentant des allergies aux œufs peuvent maintenant recevoir les doses complètes de vaccins antigrippaux donnés pas injection (trivalents et quadrivalent (VTI et VQI)) sans test cutané préalable. Seul le vaccin antigrippal vivant atténué (VVAI), administré par voie nasale, est contre-indiqué pour ces personnes, car il n’a pas été étudié dans ce groupe.
Si vous avez de la fièvre ou si vous êtes gravement malade au moment de vous faire vacciner, demandez à un médecin s’il faut ou non attendre pour la vaccination.
Aujourd’hui, les vaccins sont sans danger et entrainent peu d’effets secondaires. Une personne sur deux peut éprouver une légère douleur au point d’injection tandis qu’un plus petit nombre, surtout des enfants, peuvent faire un peu de fièvre dans les 24 heures suivant la vaccination. Le vaccin peut, à l’occasion, causer des frissons, des maux de tête ou de légères nausées.

I know that it's no way to live, but I'd be quietly making plans to get the heck out of there without him/her ever suspecting a thing, and then I'd run as fast as I could and never look back, unless I had the evidence to prosecute him or her! No person is worth risking you or your children's lives over!
Leave so you can regain your peace of mind and live a long happy life before you lose it over some crazy lunatic! It's not worth sticking around to try to figure it out someone who's half-mad!
And lastly, don't buy into letting any cop or desk sergeant sit back and make you think you're crazy. It's your life, not theirs, so if you find yourself pleading for them to listen to you and you can see they're like a deer in headlights or they're looking at you like you've got two heads, tell them to go find another job, because they're certainly not any good at the one they're doing.
In other words, don't let it bother you, because what I found is that not only do they not have the resources to investigate these matters, more than likely, they don't have the knowledge or training to do it. And they're not about to do anything other than waste your time and irritate you more, so don't bother with them and do what you have to do, yourself.
36) My girlfriend has been poisoning me for the past three years. She was hired by others to kill me for business reasons. I have to set up a trap for her but I don't know how to do that. Be aware of pretty girls. Some of them have an agenda.
35) I have all of these and more. Thrombocytopenia too (low blood platelets), which is also a symptom.
I left my boyfriend last week, and after not being with him for almost two days, I had so much energy. I literally had about 30 symptoms (some verified by a doctor's test) and I seem fine now. My twin thinks he was poisoning me.
My eyes are clear for the first time in over a year. They would look so bloodshot that I looked stoned. I was getting vertigo and dizzy spells so severely I had to almost stop driving all together, but I am driving everywhere now, and nothing. I feel like a million dollars.
34) I was just diagnosed with aneamia -- low red blood cells. My doctor thinks I may be losing blood internally. I used to work for an aluminum recycling plant where levels of arsenic were very high. It was impossible not to breathe in the dust and fumes at this plant, let alone the smell of ammonium nitrate from the wet byproduct from the furnaces. It's been six months since I've worked there and I still have that metal taste in my mouth. I'm concerned that I may have arsenic poisoning.
33) For sure, my father in law has been poisoned and we are pretty sure it was through his milk, but after reading this, I'm wondering if it has been going on longer.

Wichtige Schritte bei Symptome Grippe bzw. einer Influenza:
Bei einer leichten Erkältung muss niemand gleich zum Arzt laufen. Die meisten Patienten kennen bereits ihren Körper und wissen, was am besten hilft. Kommt Fieber ins Spiel, sollte niemand damit scherzen, weil es hier nicht nur um den eigenen Körper geht. Wer mit einer richtigen Grippe in die Arbeit geht, sollte einem das überhaupt gelingen, steckt damit eventuell unschuldige Menschen an. Deswegen sollte der Weg zum Arzt, doch an erster Stelle stehen. Bei der Influenza sind ebenso andere Maßnahmen erforderlich, als bei einer einfachen Erkältung. Bei den Influenza A Viren wird beispielsweise Amantadin zur Therapie eingesetzt. Das sind Medikamente, die nur der Arzt verschreibt. Influenza Viren sollte niemand unterschätzen, da sie wirklich gefährlich sein können. Hühnersuppe alleine hilft in dem Fall nur wenig weiter.
You may have found our site because you are concerned that you may have a parasitic infection. In this section, we will help you by telling you which parasite symptoms are most commonly associated with parasitic infections. Armed with a little knowledge, you will then be able to take the right actions to move you in a healthier, parasite-free direction.
The parasite symptoms that are associated with parasites and the infections they cause vary greatly and can indicate other causes. Some parasites can exist in the body for years and never produce a single symptom. Others will have symptoms so severe you would require immediate medical attention. It can be very hard to pinpoint an exact cause of some of the symptoms or even be misdiagnosed.
Chronic fatigue or extreme tiredness is a common symptom of a parasitic infection. The reason someone infected by a parasite may feel so tired is because the parasite living in the intestines will sap the nutrients out of the food he or she digests. The parasite will thrive, and its human host will be under nourished.
Iron deficiency, or anemia, is often caused by worm parasites in the intestines. This is a major contributor to feeling chronically fatigued. Some differences between chronic fatigue and just your run-of-the-mill tiredness are that chronic fatigue will not improve with rest, becomes worse with both mental and physical activity, and is associated with feeling weak and sore muscles.
Since many human parasites make their home in the digestive track, their hosts are likely to experience digestive related symptoms. Most of these are very unpleasant and can be embarrassing. They include belching, excessive flatulence or gas, vomiting, bloody stools, and diarrhea. Some may experience fecal incontinence or oily stools.
It’s typically those microscopic and pesky protozoa that cause the more uncomfortable symptoms like diarrhea or loose stools. This is because they release prostaglandin which is substance that causes a loss in chloride and sodium. The result is stools that are watery because the body is attempting to rid itself of the attacker.
Constipation can also be caused because some of the larger parasitic worms can lodge themselves in the intestines and cause a blockage. Over-the-counter stool softeners and a healthy diet should clear up natural bouts of constipation. You may have a parasitic worm causing a blockage if stool softeners don’t provide relief.
A common condition caused by these intestinal parasites is irritable bowel syndrome. This is a painful and uncomfortable condition that is a result of the parasite irritating the wall of the intestine and causing swelling. Many doctors have been quick to dismiss IBS as just something people must cope with. In the year 2000, researchers in England did a study that showed a significant link between the parasite giardia and irritable bowel syndrome. Ridding the body of this parasite gave great relief to the patients who had previously been diagnosed with IBS.
Since parasites don’t always stay put in the intestines, but rather move about and enter the blood stream, nervous system, and the organs, joint and muscle pain can be a symptom to look out for. This joint pain can commonly be mistaken for arthritis when in reality it is caused by inflammation due to the parasites becoming encased in a sac and existing despite our body’s best efforts to expel it.
Some parasites can cause a person to become agitated, nervous, or anxious. Researchers believe this is due to the body reacting in a way to try and rid itself of the foreign body. It’s also known that parasites release waste which can have an adverse effect on the central nervous system.
