Question
I am 42 yrs old. recent blood test shows slightly high level of triglyceride. Cholesterol level is within limits, Also i am not obese. what is  the effect of high triglycrides on the body and what can I do to control it.

Answer
Kawal,

Slightly high triglycerides (150-199 mg/dL) are probably no more than an indication that you are eating a little too many simple carbohydrates and/or not getting enough regular exercise.  Simple Carbohydrates are foods from processed grains and are usually higher in sugar and low in fiber.  For example: candy, cookies, cakes, soda pop, fruit juice, alcohol, and snack crackers.

High Triglycerides (200-499 mg/dL) or Very High Triglycerides (above 500 mg/dL) are now an accepted independent risk factor for coronary artery disease (CAD).  The importance of diagnosing and treating high triglycerides is underscored by the fact that it is often a marker for dangerous metabolic abnormalities, such as the metabolic syndrome and/or diabetes.

I hope this helps.
