Answer

Answer

In familial LCAT deficiency, renal function monitoring is imperative. This includes monitoring blood pressure, plasma BUN and creatinine values, 24-hour urinary protein levels, and creatinine clearance. Monitoring of visual acuity is also important since visual impairment due to corneal opacities may be progressive.
