A 43 year old female who was working full-time as a school teacher, attended her GP with dysuria and urinary frequency and was treated for a urinary tract infection. Three weeks later she returned to her GP complaining of ‘puffiness’ of her hands and face. Her GP checked her renal function which showed a creatinine of 103 mo1/L and urea of 4.7 mmol/ L. These results were repeated along with other investigations on a fasting sample (Table 1). On the basis of these results the patient was referred to the Lipid Clinic.
