We examined the relationship in a large free-living population between the concentration of triglycerides in plasma from fasting persons and the concentration of very-low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (VLDL-C) as determined after preparative ultracentrifugation. Data from individuals in the Framingham Heart Study who were free of coronary heart disease, did not have Fredrickson Type I, Ill, or V hyperlipoproteinemia, and whose plasma-triglyceride values were <4000 mg/L were considered in the… CONTINUE READING
