Type III Hyperlipoproteinemia: The Forgotten, Disregarded, Neglected, Overlooked, Ignored but Highly Atherogenic, and Highly Treatable Dyslipoproteinemi‪a‬ Clinical Chemistry Podcast

    • Chemistry

Cardiovascular risk is so high in type III hyperlipoproteinemia that is typically a “treat immediately on diagnosis” disorder.  In the February 2019 issue of Clinical Chemistry, a paper presented the advantages of a non-high density lipoprotein cholesterol ratio with apolipoprotein B as a diagnostic tool for type III hyperlipoproteinemia.  In the same issue, an accompanying editorial entitled “Type III Hyperlipoproteinemia: The Forgotten, Disregarded, Neglected, Overlooked, Ignored but Highly Atherogenic, and Highly Treatable Dyslipo-proteinemia” was also published.  The author of that article is Dr. Allan Sniderman, the Edwards Professor of Cardiology at McGill University in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, and he is our guest in this podcast.
