A role for carbohydrate (CHO) induction in these cases was suggested by the finding of endogenous as well as exogenous particulate fat in the plasma of 3 insulin-requiring patients with chronic diabetic lipemia, and was evaluated in 2 of them in a Clinical Research Center as follows: Each was given  a high-CHO, no-, or low-fat diet and
