Purpose of review To summarize the recent findings on the association of cholesterol levels with impulsivity and violence. Recent findings Several authors have recently highlighted the importance of confounding factors that mask the association between cholesterol and impulsivity or violent behaviour. In particular, demographic factors and presence of psychiatric disorders can play a role in the discrepancies present in literature. Men seem to be more sensitive to low cholesterol levels as the… Expand
The Association Between Dyslipidemia and Lethality of Suicide Attempts: A Case-Control Study
TLDR
Investigating the relation between dyslipidemia and the severity of suicide attempts may contribute to reveal the complex determinants underlying at-risk behaviors such as suicide, thus playing a relevant role in the possible prevention of this disabling phenomenon. Expand
Low cholesterol levels in children predict impulsivity in young adulthood
TLDR
Serum lipid levels could have an impact on the development of Maladaptive Impulsivity starting from an early age and this effect of cholesterol continues throughout adolescence into young adulthood. Expand
Disentangling the relationship between cholesterol, aggression, and impulsivity in severe mental disorders
TLDR
Investigation of the associations between cholesterol levels, aggression, and impulsivity in a large representative sample of in‐ and outpatients with SMD found no link with adverse mental symptoms. Expand
Dysregulation of amino acids and lipids metabolism in schizophrenia with violence
TLDR
A holistic view of the metabolic phenotype of schizophrenia with violence is given which is characterized by the dysregulation of lipids and amino acids, which needs to be repeated in future studies. Expand
Are Lipids Possible Markers of Suicide Behaviors?
TLDR
Metabolic deregulation, particularly low total cholesterol and low-density lipoproteins-cholesterol levels may cause higher suicide risk in patients with these psychiatric disorders. Expand
Normal cholesterol levels in the immediate postpartum period: A risk factor for depressive and anxiety symptoms?
TLDR
Measuring cholesterol levels in the peripartum can be useful to identify a subgroup of women with naturally low cholesterol levels and an increased risk for postpartum depressive and anxiety symptoms. Expand
Povezanost dislipidemije i agresivnog ponašanja u shizofreniji
The aim of this paper is to do a review of association between lipids and aggressive behaviour in schizophrenia, as well as to give an end view on the role of the pharmaceutical care for Expand
Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) and Antidepressant Medication Are Overrepresented in High-Dose Statin Treatment
TLDR
There was an overrepresentation of MDD in statin-treated patients when compared to non-statin- treated patients and there was a dose dependent relationship between statins and diagnosis ofMDD, and it is important to carefully re-investigate the relationship betweenstatins and MDD. Expand
Paradoxical effect of statin medication on depressive disorder in first-ever ischemic stroke patients: possible antidepressant-like effect prestroke and the opposite in continuous medication poststroke
TLDR
The initiation timing of continuous regular statin treatment ahead of ischemic stroke could have a correlation with a higher risk ofPSD, and sole statin pretreatment may have the tendency to reduce the risk of PSD. Expand

Serum cholesterol and impulsivity in a large sample of healthy young men
TLDR
It is suggested that, in healthy young men, a relationship between cholesterol and impulsivity emerges only when the statistical analysis focuses on subjects with very low levels of cholesterol. Expand
Low HDL cholesterol, aggression and altered central serotonergic activity
TLDR
This study gives further support to existing evidence indicating that in some individuals, the probability of exhibiting impulsive and violent behaviors may be increased when cholesterol is low and suggests that low cholesterol and alterations in 5-HT activity may be causally related. Expand
Assessing the Observed Relationship between Low Cholesterol and Violence‐related Mortality
TLDR
Low cholesterol may be a marker for risk of suicide or traumatic death and cholesterol lowering may have adverse effects for some individuals under some circumstances, which could be interpreted as having two implications for public health. Expand
Relationship among low cholesterol levels, depressive symptoms, aggression, hostility, and cynicism.
TLDR
Mixed evidence is found for independent relationships between low total and LDL cholesterol levels and impaired psychological health among middle-aged adults. Expand
Effect of a human serotonin 5-HT2A receptor gene polymorphism on impulsivity: Dependence on cholesterol levels.
TLDR
It was found that high total and LDL cholesterol levels moderate the effect of the HTR2A gene promoter polymorphism, suggesting that future studies on impulsivity need to consider the interaction of serotonergic measures with the whole range of cholesterol levels. Expand
Measurement of total serum cholesterol in the evaluation of suicidal risk.
TLDR
Total serum cholesterol levels measured at admission may be a useful biological marker of suicidal risk in patients with a history of suicidal attempts and controls for both genders. Expand
Lipids, aggression, suicidality and impulsivity in drug-naïve/drug-free patients of schizophrenia.
TLDR
This study adds to a growing literature on a complex relationship between lipid fractions and impulsivity, suicidality and aggression in schizophrenia, providing interesting insights into the biochemical basis of human behaviour and confirming these in a developing-world population. Expand
Low serum cholesterol level and attempted suicide.
TLDR
Male psychiatric patients with low cholesterol levels were twice as likely to have ever made a medically serious suicide attempt than men with cholesterol levels above the 25th percentile. Expand
The association between altered lipid profile and suicide attempt among Tunisian patients with schizophrenia
TLDR
Results of this study showed that TC levels in schizophrenic patients after a recent suicide attempt are significantly lower than in patients without suicide attempt and with lifetime suicide attempts. Expand

TLDR
It is demonstrated that recent research corroborates the idea that cholesterol plays an important role in governing behavior and psychopathology in humans, with implications for treating people with behavior or mental health problems. Expand
