Triglycerides are a type of fat (lipid) found in the blood. Our body converts any extra calories to triglycerides that are stored in your fat cells. And if you regularly go on a calorie surplus, particularly from high-carb and highly refined foods, you may have high triglycerides (hyper-triglyceridemia).
Triglycerides and cholesterol are different types of lipids(fats) that circulate in the blood:
Triglycerides store unused calories and provide body with energy, while cholesterol is used to build cells and certain hormones.
High triglycerides may contribute to hardening of the arteries (arteriosclerosis) which increases the risk of stroke, heart attack and heart diseases. Extremely high triglycerides can also cause acute inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis)
A normal range of triglycerides is less than 150 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL).
Triglycerides levels can managed withing the healthy levels through a combination of structured nutrition and physical activity
