Abstract

Heparin and insulin stimulate lipoprotein lipase activity. Therefore, they reduce serum triglyceride levels. However, heparin and insulin's efficacy in treatment of hypertriglyceridemia-induced acute pancreatitis is not well established. We report a patient in whom heparin and insulin were used successfully.
