E78.4 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of other hyperlipidemia. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.

The ICD code E784 is used to code Combined hyperlipidemia

In medicine, combined hyperlipidemia (or -aemia) (also known as multiple-type hyperlipoproteinemia) is a commonly occurring form of hypercholesterolemia (elevated cholesterol levels) characterised by increased LDL and triglyceride concentrations, often accompanied by decreased HDL.:534 On lipoprotein electrophoresis (a test now rarely performed) it shows as a hyperlipoproteinemia type IIB. It is the most commonly inherited lipid disorder, occurring in around one in 200 persons. In fact, almost one in five individuals who develop coronary heart disease before the age of 60 have this disorder.
