• Hypertriglyceridemia
  • Exogenous estrogens (ethinyl estradiol, 1 µg/kg body weight per day), which stimulate triglyceride production in normal women and those with endogenous hypertriglyceridemia, were found to exert a paradoxical, hypolipidemic effect in six subjects (five women, one man) with type III hyperlipoproteinemia on diets both of normal and of fat-free, high-carbohydrate composition.

  • vascular
  • Up to now, there are only few reports about iris manifestations in the literature in contrast to the well-established association of lipemia retinalis, retinal vascular occlusion, corneal arcus lipoides and eyelid changes with hyperlipoproteinemia. (egms.de)
  • Type III
  • These findings suggest that estrogens facilitate the assimilation of chylomicron and VLD lipoprotein remnants, a defect that appears likely to represent the metabolic abnormality underlying type III hyperlipoproteinemia. (annals.org)
  • various
  • This pathology, however, is the second-most common disorder of the various hyperlipoproteinemias, with individuals with a heterozygotic predisposition of one in every 500 and individuals with homozygotic predisposition of one in every million. (wikipedia.org)
