Triglycerides are a type of fat found in the blood. When you eat, your body converts any calories it doesn’t need to use right away into triglycerides, which are stored in fat cells.

• High Levels: High triglyceride levels can increase the risk of coronary artery disease. Elevated levels can be due to overweight/obesity, physical inactivity, cigarette smoking, excess alcohol consumption, a very high carbohydrate diet, certain diseases and medications, and genetic disorders.

• Low Levels: Low triglyceride levels are generally not a concern and are typically seen as beneficial. However, extremely low levels can be a result of malnutrition, malabsorption, or hyperthyroidism.
