lipemia

an excess of lipids in the blood; hyperlipemia.

alimentary lipemia
postprandial lipemia (below).
fasting lipemia
that present when food has been withheld for at least 24 hours.
postprandial lipemia
a physiological effect that occurs between 2 and 12 hours after the ingestion of food high in lipids.
lipemia-refrigeration test
refrigeration of a lipemic blood sample may distinguish between triglyceride-rich lipoproteins, which persist in the turbid sample, and chylomicra, which rise to form a flocculent top layer while the sample clears.
lipemia retinalis
