The article focuses on the treatment of the hyperlipidemic states with special emphasis on the place of cholestyramine in therapy. Dietary treatment is important and forms the cornerstone of treatment of the hyperlipidemias. Drug treatment currently consists of the use of one or more of the following four drugs: Nicotinic Acid or Aluminum Nicotinate; Clofibrate; Dextrothyroxine; and Cholestyramine. Dietary treatment consists of an extremely low fat diet with restriction of total fat to about 20 grams of fat per day or 8 to 10% of calories derived from fat. This dietary restriction must at the same time contain at least 1% of total calories as linoleic acid to meet essential fatty acid requirements and must of course, provide adequate fat soluble vitamins.

    Background: Cow milk is a natural source of the cis 9, trans 11 isomer of conjugated linoleic acid (c9,t11-CLA) and trans vaccenic acid (VA). These fatty acids may be considered as functional foods, and the concentration in milk can be increased by e.g. sunflower oil supplementation to the dairy...
