Type IV Hyperlipoproteinemia

Type IV Hyperlipoproteinemia: Introduction

Type IV Hyperlipoproteinemia: Type IV Hyperlipoproteinemia is an inherited condition characterized by high levels of very low density lipoproteins (VLDL) in the blood which in turn causes high cholesterol levels. Lipoproteins are responsible for transporting cholesterol in the bloodstream and high levels of them in the bloodstream means that there are high levels of cholesterol in the bloodstream. The high VLDL levels are a result of increased production and reduced elimination of the VLDLs. Environmental factors are the driving force behind this condition. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Type IV Hyperlipoproteinemia is available below.
