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
that manifested by a milky appearance of the veins and arteries of the retina. Seen in hyperlipoproteinemia in dogs.

Because such modest postprandial lipemia may be masked by measuring lipid profiles in the fasting state, fasting concentrations may not be optimal for evaluating cardiovascular risk in individuals with diabetes, particularly because nonfasting triglycerides as a marker of increased remnant cholesterol appear to be particularly good at predicting risk of myocardial infarction, ischemic stroke, and early death in the average person in the general population (7-9).
