The plasma lipid transport system is extremely sensitive to modification by the thyroid hormones. This is best illustrated by the changes in plasma lipoprotein concentrations and lipolytic enzyme activity tluu occur in humans with hyper- and hypothyroidism. Despite the prevalence of hyperthyroidism in the cat, there are no data on associated changes in lipoprotein metabolism.
