Hypoalphalipoproteinemias, also called familial high density lipoprotein deficiency disease and HDL lipoprotein deficiency disease, are defined as "conditions with abnormally low levels of alpha-lipoproteins (high-density lipoproteins) in the blood. Hypoalphalipoproteinemia can be associated with mutations in genes encoding apolipoprotein A-I; lecithin cholesterol acyltransferase; and ATP-binding cassette transporters." This causes hypertriglyceridemia.
