Plasma endogenous triglyceride transport kinetics were determined in 16 hyperthyroid and in 12 hypothyroid patients and the results compared with those of euthyroid control subjects. In addition, the removal of exogenous particulate fat (Intralipid; Vitrum, Sweden) from the circulation and the postheparin plasma lipolytic activity (PHLA) were studied in these patients for further characterization of the alterations of plasma triglyceride metabolism in thyroid disease.
