Fredrickson’s classification of hyperlipidemia (type I, II, IIa, IIb, III, IV, V) is based on the electrophoretic pattern of lipoprotein

Hyperlipidemia means a high level of lipid content in the blood. It may be due to a primary cause or secondary. Secondary cause due to some kinds of disease

  1. Diabetes Mellitus
  2. Hypothyroidism
  3. Nephrotic Syndrome

Fredrickson classified hyperlipidemia on the base of an electrophoretic pattern of lipoprotein. There are six types of hyperlipidemia.

Here’s the video of Fredrickson’s classification of hyperlipidemia (type I, II, IIa, IIb, III, IV, V) is based on the electrophoretic pattern of lipoprotein.

  1. Which kinds of lipoprotein patterns show in Type IIa hyperlipidemia?

    Chylomicron is one kind of lipoprotein pattern is shown in electrophoresis.

  2. Which kinds of lipoprotein patterns show in electrophoresis Type V hyperlipidemia?

    Pre-B lipoprotein and chylomicrons increase in type V hyperlipidemia.

  3. what is fredrickson type iia hyperlipoproteinemia?

    Fredrickson type IIa hyperlipoproteinemia, also known as familial hypercholesterolemia (FH), is a genetic disorder characterized by high levels of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) in the blood.
    It is named after Dr. Donald Fredrickson, an American physician and researcher who classified hyperlipoproteinemia into different types based on lipid profiles.

  4. Which is the classification of hyperlipidemias by?

    Hyperlipidemias are classified based on the patterns of lipoprotein abnormalities observed in individuals. The most commonly used classification system for hyperlipidemias is the Fredrickson classification, named after Dr. Donald Fredrickson, who developed it in the 1960s.
    The Fredrickson classification categorizes hyperlipidemias into five types based on the specific lipoprotein involved and the underlying genetic and metabolic defects.
