Abstract
Beeson, Thomas F., Cornelius P. Brooke and William E. Hadcock (Carroll College, Helena, Montana). Lipoprotein levels in the Hutterites: correlatation with hyperlipidemia and nutrient intake. Serum cholesterol and serum triglyceride concentrations were determined for 90 Hutterites from the R and M colonies. Samples with serum lipid levels above recommended values were subject to lipoprotein electrophoresis. Of those tested by electrophoresis, 18.4 percent of the R colony Hutterites and 23.1 percent of the M colony Hutterites were diagnosed as hyperlipidemic. Lipoprotein electrophoresis showed a type II pattern in most cases. Dietary analysis was included in our study. The R colony Hutterites consumed 76 percent and the M colony Hutterites 53 percent of their dietary fat in saturated fatty acids. This was viewed to be the etiology of the high incidence of type II hyperlipidemia.
