Includes HDL-C, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol; LDL-C, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol; and, VLDL-C, very low-density lipoprotein cholesterol. The evaluation of hyperlipidemia is an index to coronary artery disease. Investigation of serum lipids is indicated in those with coronary and other arterial disease, especially when it is premature, and in those with family history of atherosclerosis or of hyperlipidemia. In this sense, the expression “premature” is mostly used to include those with a family history of premature CHD (definite myocardial infarction), or sudden death before 55 years of age in father or other male first-degree relative, or before 65 years of age in mother or other female first-degree relative.
