Mixed dyslipidaemia is common in people with diabetes and occurs in up to 20% of cases. Diabetes keto-acidosis can occur in patients with type 2 diabetes.11 Hypertriglyceridaemia is a well-recognised cause of pancreatitis. Other common causes of pancreatitis include gall stones, alcohol, drugs (azathioprine and dideoxyinosine) and post-endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP). Therapeutic options for acute and severe dyslipidaemia include insulin therapy, fabric acid derivatives, fish oils and, rarely, nicotinic acids. Hospitalisation may be required for plasmapheresis in specialised centres.
