Hi Viveka,

Welcome to the Lipoprotein Lipase Deficiency community. My name is Sandra and I work with EURORDIS as community manager on RareConnect .

We’ve moved your question from our Discussion Group section ( to the LPLD community, so all the questions and comments can be found on one place.

Here you can meet with other people experiences with LPLD. Feel free to ask questions here and also check the other sections of this community to read stories of the families and find interesting articles and information about LPLD ( In Member section you can also find a map with the location of other members.

I hope that other members will join this conversation and can help you with making a list of food.


Hi Viveka, my name is Jill and I'm one of the moderators. Some years ago I created a list of can eat/can't eat foods as a handy guide which is published on the HEART UK website. It's by no means conclusive but does help to point in the right direction.

If you have any questions please do post them on the forum. It would also be useful to post a profile so that others on the site can see if they feel they have anything in common with you that they might want to share.

Best wishes

This was one of my biggest struggles with my daughter's diagnosis, I would get caught up in how many foods she couldn't eat. I've posted a bunch of lists of nonfat foods that you can eat on my web site, as well as some of our favorite family recipes. Hope that helps!

I have a blog where I share recipes and foods that work for us:

Some posts that specifically list some foods you can eat are:
