can you name the type 2B and type 4?
type 2B is the combined hyperlipidemia: increased LDL and VLDL therefore you have increased TG and cholesterol in the blood; is due to the liver overproducing VLDL;

type 4 is hypertriglyceridemia: increased VLDL therefore you have increased triglyercides in the blood; again it's the overproduction of VLDL;

Another name for niacin? Nicotinic acid
