A relationship between abnormal lipid metabolism and atherosclerosis is generally suspected and, in the past, elaborate laboratory methods have been employed in an attempt to demonstrate this correlation. A relatively new approach to this problem has been the determination of blood levels following the absorption of I131-labeled fat—a test first used in the study of various diseases associated with malabsorption [1].
