Increased Hemoglobin-Oxygen Affinity in Patients with Pancreatitis Associated with Type I and V Hyperlipoproteinemia
It is now well established that one kind of pancreatitis is closely related to hyperlipemia and a lipoprotein electrophoretic pattern of Type I or V (Havel, 1969; Banks, 1971; Stum and Spiro, 1971; Farmer et al, 1973). In familial hyperlipoproteinemia (HLP) of these types acute pancreatitis may materialize when serum triglyceride levels are high (above 10 g/l), whereas remission occurs in response to a low fat diet. This association has led to the suggestion that the pancreatitis is caused by the disorder in lipid metabolism. The possible mechanism whereby hyperlipemia may predispose patients to attacks of pancreatitis remains poorly understood.
