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

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

Which kinds of lipoprotein patterns show in Type IIa hyperlipidemia?

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

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