abstract

  • FCHL and FHTG appear more alike than dissimilar. Further, the risk of CAD in FCHL and FHTG was strongly related to features of the metabolic syndrome. These findings suggest that the hypertriglyceridemia in FHTG is not benign and may warrant a change in epidemiological, genetic, and clinical approaches to these lipid disorders.
