A 52-year-old man was referred to our clinic for management of severe hypertriglyceridemia diagnosed five years previously as a result of routine blood work. His medical history was also significant for type 2 diabetes mellitus. His hypertriglyceridemia had been poorly controlled, because of medication noncompliance. He did not use any medication for his severe hypertriglyceridemia since one year. The patient did not smoke or consume alcohol. He was asymptomatic and had no history of abdominal pain or pancreatitis. There was no evidence of abdominal distension, rebound tenderness or guarding. There was only family history of dyslipidemia. The patient's father and brother both were diagnosed with hyperlipidemia.
