type IV familial hyperlipoproteinaemia

plasma levels of vLDL, pre-beta-lipoproteins and triglycerides are increased on a normal diet, but beta-lipoproteins, cholesterol, and phospholipids are normal; hypertriglyceridemia is induced by a high carbohydrate diet; may be accompanied by abnormal glucose tolerance and susceptibility to ischemic heart disease; probably autosomal recessive inheritance.

Synonym: carbohydrate-induced hyperlipaemia, familial hyperprebetalipoproteinaemia, familial hypertriglyceridemia.
