Triglycerides are the most common type of fat (or lipid) in your body. They come from foods, especially butter, oils, and other fats you eat. Triglycerides are chemical compounds digested by the body to provide it with the energy for metabolism.
Triglyceride levels in the blood are measured by a simple blood test, often as part of a lipoprotein panel (lipid panel) in which triglycerides, cholesterol, HDL and LDL are measured at the same time.
A healthy lifestyle that includes eating well, exercising routinely, smoking cessation, and weight loss may help to lower triglyceride levels. Your health-care professional will help you to decide what treatment is most appropriate for you.
