Vascular Malformations: Symptoms, Diagnosis and Treatment
Vascular malformations are rare with some types found in less than 1 percent of the population. If you have one, chances are it developed before you were born—many types of vascular malformations don’t cause symptoms until they are triggered by such events as adolescence, pregnancy, or some major surgery, trauma or injury.
Hypercholesterolemia (High Cholesterol)
Quarter-pound burgers, French fries, deep-fried chicken…our modern diets are often high in unhealthy fats. The fact that extra fats are so easily available in popular food has caused a spike in the number of U.S. residents with high cholesterol, which is the diagnosis given when a person has an unusually high level of fats in their blood. While high cholesterol can lead to potentially life-threatening conditions such as heart attack and stroke, it can also be easily managed through diet, exercise, and medication.
