Which one of the following conditions is a secondary Hyperlipidemic state?
1 Familial Hypercholesteremia
3 Cholestatic Liver disease
- Heterozygous Hypertriglyceridemia
Primary dyslipidemia is basically inherited and caused by single or multiple gene mutations that result in either overproduction or defective clearance of triglycerides and cholesterol. Secondary dyslipidemia is caused by unhealthy lifestyle factors and acquired medical conditions, including underlying diseases and applied drugs. Cholestatic Liver disease is a secondary etiology for the same. The rest of the options are all primary dyslipidemia conditions. Thank you.
