What is Type I Hyperlipoproteinemia?

  • Type I Hyperlipoproteinemia: Type I Hyperlipoproteinemia is a rare inherited condition characterized by high levels of chylomicrons (a type of lipoprotein) in the blood. This condition is the result of low levels of lipoprotein lipase which is responsible for lowering lipoprotein levels. Cholesterol levels are usually normal and the risk of heart disease is low.

Type I Hyperlipoproteinemia is listed as a "rare disease" by the Office of Rare Diseases (ORD) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). This means that Type I Hyperlipoproteinemia, or a subtype of Type I Hyperlipoproteinemia, affects less than 200,000 people in the US population.
