Answer

See the list below:

  • Patients with hypoalphalipoproteinemia (HA) rarely require transfer, and no specific recommendations are available for this purpose. In patients who are admitted to a health care facility, transfer depends mainly on the underlying condition or on complications of HA or premature atherosclerosis, such as myocardial infarction, arrhythmia, or hypotension.
