To study the various factors related with hypertriglyceridemia, 2,011 persons who visited Yongdong Health Examination Center for general check-up during the period from May. 1990 to Sep. 1990 were examined by means of questionnaire on living environment and health behavior and laboratory findings.
Hypertriglyceridemia was defined as plasma triglyceride over 250mg%.
We made the nongypertriglyceridemic control group by random matching each hypertriglyceridemic person by age and sex(1:1 matching).
There were 128 persons for nonhypertriglyceridemic group and 128 persons for hypertriglyceridemic group.

The results were as follows.
1. The incidence of hypertriglyceridemia was 128(6.3%) among 2,011 cases and sexual distribution was 102/1215(8.4%) in males and 26/796(3.3%) in females.
2. The incidence of hypertriglyceridemia was increasing while patient's age increased and which was statistically significant(p<0.05).
3. In hypertriglyceridemic group, smoking rate(p<0.01) and smoking amount(p<0.05), alcohol drinking rate(p<0.05), hypertension(p<0.05), diabetes mellitus(p<0.05), fatty liver(p<0,05), total cholesterol level, HDL cholesterol level and LDL cholesterol level were significantly different from nonhypertriglyceridemic group by statistics.
4. In respect of obesity, there was no significant difference between hypertriglyceridemic and nonhypertriglyceridemic groups.
