Except for primary (genetic caused) dyslipoproteinemias, in clinical practice frequent are also secondary dyslipoproteinemias, which are consequence of other basic disorder that alters metabolism of lipids and lipoproteins. Some endo­crinopathies lead to quantitative and qualitative changes of lipid composition. Type 1 and also type 2 diabetes mellitus cause alterations of metabolism of lipids and lipoproteins. Hypothyroidism is typical representative of secondary dyslipoproteinemias. As a consequence of decreased effect of thyroidal hormones, hypothyroidism is characterized of elevated levels of total and LDL cholesterol in plasm. Dyslipoproteinemias also occur in some other endocrinopathies.

Key words:
dyslipoproteinemias – endocrinopathies – hypothyroidism
