Atherosclerosis is a slow, gradually progressive disease that is what scientists and doctors call “multifactorial” in nature; that is, the things that kick it off and contribute to it are many and varied. One common denominator with Atherosclerosis is damage to and dysfunction of the lining of arteries called the endothelium. This endothelial damage in Atherosclerosis can, in the presence of hyperlipidemia or high levels of “bad lipids” such as LDL (Oxidized Low Density Lipoprotein) and triglycerides, plus the kind of poor blood sugar regulation and insulin resistance associated with Type 2 or adult on-set diabetes can set the stage for disturbed blood flow. As endothelial cells die neighboring mature endothelial cells proliferate and migrate to heal the wound. This process results in the development of a fibrous build-up called an atheroma. As this grows blood vessels narrow, blood pressure rises, and the sufferer is at greater risk of a stroke or heart attack.
