Triglycerides are a type of fat present in the blood. The body uses this fat for energy. Too much of triglycerides with a high LDL cholesterol can be a threat to the body. It can lead to heart diseases and metabolic syndrome. Metabolic syndrome increases the chances of heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. The normal range for triglyceride is 150 mg/dl. Anything more than 200 mg/dl is considered as high.


Triglycerides are caused due to abnormalities within the body. They include:

  • Obesity
  • Kidney disease
  • Erratic eating habits
  • High consumption of alcohol

If you are taking medications for some other disorder in your body, this too can spur your triglycerides level such as:

  • Steroids
  • Beta-blockers
  • Diuretics
  • Estrogen
  • Birth control pills


Symptoms are not seen. But if you are diagnosed with a disorder of a generic type then you may see fatty deposits under your skin. It is identified as xanthomas.


Heart wellness cardiac clinics in Hyderabad would recommend blood tests which would indicate the presence of cholesterol and triglycerides. The total lipid profile in your blood captures all of the cholesterols. This test measures LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, triglycerides, and total cholesterol.

  • Cholesterol: Too much cholesterol in the blood gets stocked up in the arteries causing plaque. These can cause heart attacks.
  • HDL cholesterol: High-density lipoprotein carries the cholesterol back to the liver for disposal. This cholesterol decreases heart risk.
  • LDL cholesterol: Low-density lipoprotein carries fat and a small amount of protein to the areas in the body that needs it. An increase in LDL or bad cholesterol can risk heart diseases.
  • VLDL cholesterol: Very low-density lipoprotein distributes the triglycerides produced by the liver. High VLDL cholesterol can build up in your arteries leading to heart attacks.
  • Triglycerides: They are a type of fat that stores energy and powers up your muscles. A high triglyceride level along with LDL cholesterol may trigger heart diseases while just LDL cholesterol may not affect much.

Top heart wellness treatment centers say that if you are diagnosed with a high triglyceride level you should strictly make the lifestyle changes suggested by your doctor.
