Answer

See the list below:

  • Generally, patients with hypoalphalipoproteinemia (HA) are discovered during routine lipid profile testing. Such patients are ambulatory and do not usually require hospitalization or inpatient care.

  • Inpatient care is usually required for complications arising from accelerated atherosclerosis.

  • In patients with secondary causes of HA, inpatient care may become necessary based on the primary pathology.
