La cuantificacion de la lipemia posprandial se hizo en dos fases.
The effect of short-term glycemic regulation with gliclazide and metformin on postprandial lipemia.
Lipemia can displace this ratio by falsely increasing the lipid proportion to as much 25 percent of the total plasma/serum volume.
We also suggest that accrediting agencies develop and enforce requirements of good laboratory practices that require laboratorians to evaluate the effect of interference, such as hemolysis, lipemia, and icterus, on a method-by-method basis.
Plasma and serum samples (n = 40) with grossly elevated lipemia ([greater than or equal to] [3.
Indeed, as mentioned previously, in pseudonormonatremia, where genuinely elevated sodium values are measured as normal due to lipemia or hyperproteinemia, such samples present similar opportunity for errors in patient management.
Hemolysis, lipemia, and icteria are detected via a spectrophotometry method, and semiquantitative unitless values are provided for each sample on the chemistry analyzer.
Prolonged refrigeration, repeated freeze-thawing, hemolysis, and lipemia altered the results.
In addition, nonfasting samples may cause errors on laboratory systems by affecting enzymes or immunoassays if lipemia indices are set at low concentrations.
Specifically, lipemia is an accumulation of lipoprotein particles leading to sample turbidity, which is a function of lipoprotein size.
I understand the lipemia (we airfuge/ultrafuge them to remove the lipemia).
Hemolysis, icteria, and lipemia may result in spurious and unreliable test results (29).
