What is Lipoprotein Lipase Deficiency (LPLD) ?
Lipoprotein Lipase Deficiency, is also known as Type I hyperlipoproteinemia or Familial chylomicronemia. People with LPLD have very high triglyceride levels because they lack lipase, the enzyme that clears fat from the blood. Symptoms include recurrent abdominal pain, fat-filled spots known as ‘eruptive xanthomata’, and attacks of acute pancreatitis.
