Surveys of the apparently healthy working population of the West of Scotland have revealed a high prevalence of hyperlipoproteinaemia (HIP). In males, type IV occurred more frequently (12%) than in females (3.3%), although obesity played an important part in this finding. HLP also occurred frequently (61%) in survivors of myocardial infarction (type II 39%, type IV 22%) but less frequently in peripheral vascular disease (38%), although there was a higher prevalence in females (47%) than males (32%) largely due to an increased prevalence of type IIa (29.5% cf 7.5%). HLP did not appear to play a significant role in cerebrovascular disease.
