Abstract Share this page

To investigate the pathogenesis of hypertriglyceridemia in patients with renal disease we measured plasma lipoprotein composition as well as hepatic triglyceride lipase and lipoprotein lipase in post-heparin plasma. Three groups with renal disease were studied: conservatively treated chronic uremia; patients undergoing maintenance hemodialysis; and renal-allograft recipients. A selective decrease of hepatic triglyceride lipase with normal lipoprotein lipase was found in conservatively treated uremia and in patients undergoing hemodialysis. Elevated levels of very-low-density lipoproteins and increased triglycerides in low-density lipoproteins occurred in these patients. In contrast, hepatic triglyceride lipase and lipoprotein lipase were both normal in patients after renal transplantation who had Type II hyperlipoproteinemia as a common lipoprotein pattern with increased low-density-lipoprotein cholesterol and decreased high-density-lipoprotein cholesterol concentrations. The accumulation of a triglyceride-rich low-density lipoprotein in the majority of patients with renal disease may be the consequence of low hepatic triglyceride lipase.
