fa·mil·i·al hy·per·lip·o·pro·te·in·e·mi·a type V

hyperlipoproteinemia characterized by increased plasma levels of chylomicrons, VLDL, pre-β-lipoproteins, and triglycerides, and slight rise of cholesterol on a normal diet, with β-lipoproteins normal; may be accompanied by bouts of abdominal pain, hepatosplenomegaly, susceptibility to atherosclerosis, and abnormal glucose tolerance; probably autosomal recessive inheritance.

The Steffes-Freier formula (3) is based on triglyceride concentration alone; thus, there is potential for error in cases in which the hyperlipidemia is caused predominantly by hypercholesterolemia or mixed hypertriglyceridemia / hypercholesterolemia.
