In other species: dog

Categories: Homeostasis / metabolism phene

Links to possible relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s) in OMIM: 145750 (trait)

Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown

Considered a defect: yes

Cross-species summary: Elevated fasting serum triglycerides concentrations are called Hypertriglyceridaemia. Primary Hypertriglyceridaemia is caused by genetic defects that cause abnormal triglyceride metabolism while secondary Hypertriglyceridaemia can be associated with other causes, such as nutrition, drugs, and/or other metabolic syndromes.
