Hypertriglyceridemia is Associated With an Elevated Blood Viscosity Rosenson: Triglycerides and Blood Viscosity.
Elevated blood viscosity is a predictor of cardiovascular disease. The major determinants of blood viscosity are hematocrit and plasma viscosity. Plasma triglycerides elevate plasma viscosity; however, the contribution of plasma triglycerides to blood viscosity after adjustment for other major...
Hyperviscosity syndromes are characterized by altered blood flow properties; the rheological properties of blood depend from cellular or plasmatic factors. In this study we have evaluated the role of some high molecular weight proteins (IgG, IgA, IgM, fibrinogen) and of some triglyceride-rich...
