Cholesterolemia

 

(also cholesterinemia), the cholesterol content in blood. A high cholesterol level, or hypercholesterolemia, is found to be associated with the nephrotic syndrome, cholangitis, and some metabolic diseases, including atherosclerosis, diabetes mellitus, and podagra. A low level of cholesterol, or hypocholesterolemia, is observed in such diseases as thyrotoxicosis, Addison’s disease, and colitis.
