Endothelial abnormalities are often the result of insulin resistance and hyperglycaemia, which are associated with diabetes mellitus (Chang, Daly and Elliot, 2006). Abnormalities in the endothelial tissue of the cardiovascular system can cause a build up of atherosclerosis, forming plaque and narrowing the lumen of the blood vessels (Johnson, 2008). Risk factors for atherosclerosis include type 2 diabetes mellitus (Johnson, 2008). If atherosclerosis is left untreated it can lead to a person experiencing a myocardial infarction (Johnson, 2008). Macrovascular disease is the primary cause of death in people with type 2 diabetes mellitus (Gardner and Shoback, 2007).

Kidneys: A wide range of kidney diseases can occur in Alagille syndrome. The kidneys can also have decreased function. (1,3) [pic] One of the major elements of Alagille disease is malfunctions to the liver. Liver damage can be caused by abnormalities in the bile ducts. Bile ducts carry bile from the liver to the gallbladder, and bile is what helps to digest fats.These bile ducts may be limited and tight, so the bile gets trapped and will build up inside the bile ducts which prevent the liver from working to its best ability (1,3).
Gastroparesis Terri Wright Ms. Ann Bulger February 20, 2012 Gastroparesis, or paralysis of the stomach, is a common digestive disorder, a condition in which the stomach does not function normally. The muscle in the wall of the stomach works poorly or not at all, preventing the stomach to empty properly. The stomach has two parts. The fundus, the upper portion and the antrum, which is where the food is churned back and forth until it is broken into small fragments and then released into the duodenum, the first part of the small intestine. When the condition of gastroparesis is present the stomach is not able to crush food or release it into the duodenum causing normal digestion not to occur.

Coronary Artery Disease Coronary Artery Disease is also known by other names such as, Atherosclerosis, hardening of the ateries, heart disease, Ischemic heart disease and narrowing of the arteries. Coronary Artery Disease is where one or more of the arteries supplying blood to the heart muscle become blocked.

Atherosclerosis is a multi focal, smoldering immunoinflammatory disease of medium sized and large arteries filled by lipids.
