Abstract

This study reports a 7-y-old boy with severe hypertriglyceridaemia who was successfully treated for 6 y with a low glycaemic index-high carbohydrate modified lipid diet that produced beneficial changes in triglyceride and total cholesterol levels. It is suggested that a selection of a complex digestible carbohydrate and an adequate ratio between polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fat may, in the long term, favourably improve the lipid profile.
