Objective:0 To evaluate the relationship between dietary fat intake and degree of lipid excretion in the urine of patients with chyluria. Patients and methods:0 This study was performed in two phases. In phase I, 20 patients with chyluria were included in the study, where the relationship between quantity of the dietary fat consumed and degree of loss of lipid in urine was studied. In phase II of the study, 20 patients with chyluria were studied to see the relationship between the quality of dietary fat and degree of lipid loss in urine. Results:0 Fat restriction can significantly diminish lipiduria and massive lipiduria may occur following consumption of even 25 g/day dietary fat. With increment in the dietary fat intake, there were paradoxical changes. Lipiduria is minimum with 50 g/day fat consumption. Lipiduria is affected by the quality of fat consumption. Ghee is the major culprit inducing maximum lipiduria as compared to mustard oil. Conclusion:0 In the patients of chyluria, lipid loss in urine is influenced by quantity as well as quality of daily fat intake.
