chronically elevated

  • It may be that chronically elevated levels of stress hormones in the body cause symptoms similar to those caused by organophosphates.
  • People with BPD typically have a chronically elevated risk of suicide much above that of the general population and a history of multiple attempts when in crisis.
  • Although reported signs and symptoms have not appeared to be severe enough to cause blindness in the near term, long term consequences of chronically elevated intracranial pressure is unknown.
  • Patients with end-stage renal disease can have chronically elevated troponin T levels, which are linked to a poorer prognosis.
  • Diabetes mellitus type 2 is a disease characterized by chronically elevated blood glucose levels, even when fasting.
  • In people with hyperammonemia orotic acid and homocitrulline appear to be chronically elevated after a high protein diet, but may be normal when fasting.
  • It may be that pathologic changes occurring in small vessels are more sensitive to chronically elevated glucose levels than is atherosclerosis occurring in larger arteries.
  • This response may then protect against the harmful process of ectopic fat storage, which perhaps explains the connection between chronically elevated leptin levels and ectopic fat storage in obese individuals.
  • Thus, chronically elevated PTH will deplete bone stores.
  • Over a period of decades, chronically elevated serum cholesterol contributes to formation of atheromatous plaques in the arteries.
  • In contrast, other retinal vascular complications of hypertension, such as macroaneurysms and branch-vein occlusions, are not uncommon in patients with chronically elevated blood pressure.
  • In other words, the chronically elevated adrenergic state characteristic of an untreated pheochromocytoma leads to near-total inhibition of renin-angiotensin activity, resulting in excessive fluid loss in the urine and thus reduced blood volume.
  • When carbon dioxide levels are chronically elevated, the respiratory center becomes less sensitive to as a stimulant of the respiratory drive, and the PaO2 provides the primary stimulus for respirations.
  • In cows plasma FGF21 was nearly undetectable in late pregnancy, peaked at parturition, and then stabilized at lower, chronically elevated concentrations during early lactation.
  • Similar to what is observed in chronic inflammation, chronically elevated leptin levels are associated with obesity, overeating, and inflammation-related diseases, including hypertension, metabolic syndrome, and cardiovascular disease.
  • Chronically elevated plasma calcium (hypercalcemia) is associated with cardiac arrhythmias and decreased neuromuscular excitability.
  • Plasma FGF21 was similarly increased in the absence of parturition when an energy-deficit state was induced by feed restricting late-lactating dairy cows, implicating energy insufficiency as a cause of chronically elevated FGF21 in EL.
  • For example, neuropeptide Y (NPY) and 5-Dehydroepiandrosterone (5-DHEA) are thought to limit the stress response by reducing sympathetic nervous system activation and protecting the brain from the potentially harmful effects of chronically elevated cortisol levels respectively.
