Hypertriglyceridaemia is common in gout (1,2). There is good evidence that the hyperprebetalipoproteinaemia of gout patients may be associated with obesity and excessive alcohol consumption (3). It remains uncertain, however, whether obesity and alcohol, either alone or in combination, are sufficient to explain the hyperlipidaemia in all cases.
