Hence, solo abnormalities in plasma HDL cholesterol cannot be assumed to be causally related to cardiovascular disease  Genetic Basis for Fredrickson Classes Familial Chylomicronemia Synonyms: hyperlipoproteinemia type I, Lipoprotein lipase deficiency, chylomicronemia syndrome Chylomicrons (from the Greek chylo, meaning juice or milky fluid, and micron, meaning small particle) are lipoprotein particles that consist of triglycerides (85– 92 %), phospholipids (6–12 %), cholesterol (1–3 %), and proteins (1–2 %) .
