The cholesterol, triglyceride, and lipid profile with atherogenic index and leptin level may be involved in gallstone disease. This study aimed to investigate the relation of triglyceride, cholesterol levels with atherogenic index and leptin level in gallstone disease. A controlled clinical study was performed, in which we examined parameters of cholesterol, triglyceride, HDL, LDL, and liver function values, leptin level in control healthy individuals and gallstone patients. Unconditional… Expand

Serum leptin levels and insulin resistance are associated with gallstone disease in overweight subjects.
TLDR
It is concluded that insulin resistance and the development of GD appears to be associated with serum leptin levels in subjects with overweight, but not in obese subjects with similar metabolic profiles. Expand
Leptin levels and lipoprotein profiles in patients with cholelithiasis
TLDR
Patients with cholelithiasis have higher leptin levels and an altered lipoprotein profile compared with controls, with increased leptin levels being associated with increased Lp(a) and ApoB levels, and decreased ApoA-1 levels. Expand
Serum lipid concentrations in patients with cholesterol and pigment gallstones
TLDR
Patients with cholesterol GS are more likely to have serum lipid parameters towards the undesirable cutoff levels of their respective normal ranges when the two groups of patients with cholesterol and pigment GS with no significant difference of body mass indexes were compared. Expand
Plasma leptin and the cholesterol saturation of bile are correlated in obese women after weight loss.
Increased cholesterol secretion is a major alteration of biliary function in obese subjects Leptin is a regulator of food intake and is increased in plasma of subjects with low energy expenditure andExpand
Relation of cholesterol metabolism to pediatric gallstone disease: a retrospective controlled study
TLDR
Gallstone subclasses shared enhanced cholesterol synthesis, and black pigment stone group was characterized by deteriorated cholesterol metabolism, and accumulation of cholestanol, campesterol and sitosterol in serum and stones suggesting their participation in pathogenesis. Expand
Clinical significance of serum triglyceride elevation at early stage of acute biliary pancreatitis
TLDR
In ABP patients, TG elevation might participate in the aggravation of pancreatitis and the occurrence of systemic or local complications, and the TG level may serve as an important indicator to determine the prognosis of patients with ABP. Expand

TLDR
Levels of these hormones were altered during the course of gallstone-induced AP, and these changes might be associated with the clinical outcomes of the disease. Expand
Clinical Study of 224 Patients with Hypertriglyceridemia Pancreatitis
TLDR
The study demonstrated that TG level ≥500 mg/dl should raise a high degree of suspicion, especially if no other etiology of AP is apparent, and the severity of HTGP seems to correlate directly with TG level. Expand
Diabetes and hyperlipidemia correlate with gallbladder contractility in leptin-related murine obesity
TLDR
Serum glucose, insulin, cholesterol, and triglyceride levels and body weight all correlated similarly, negatively, and significantly with gallbladder contractility, which in turn may contribute to the association between obesity and gallstone formation. Expand
Role of Ghrelin and Leptin in Predicting the Severity of Acute Pancreatitis
TLDR
It is concluded that serum leptin and ghrelin levels increase in the first 48 hr of AEP and ANP, and as the serum gh Relin levels in ANP are higher than in AEP, it can be used as a marker to show the severity of pancreatitis. Expand
