I had. 2 lipid panels done 4 days apart. My triglycerides went from 164 to 184. My HDL lol went from 41 to 39. Everything else is perfect. Why would there be a jump in triglycerides by 20 points in 4 days and decrease of 2 in HDl that quick. My diet remains the same. I am in my car all day driving so I normally eat something from fast food or a restraint. I am not afraid to even eat or drink anything. At 184 does. It mean there is plaque buildup taking place yet or just I need to do something before there is?
Admin: You need to change your lifestyle and dietgto control your cholesterol and triglycerides.

I am so used to junk food. I work 16 hours and no time go to gym. I am taking simply fish oil and omega3.
Admin: Please change your life style and diet to reduce your cholesterol.

2 months ago my blood work was only showing problem with my thyroid. Monday's blood work now shows triglyceride level at 415. Will this be a lifetime thing now or will medicine cure it?
Admin: Medicine and life style changes will control your triglyceride level and thyroid.

I am a pretty healthy (visceral fat 7%, body fat 21%, BMI 25.3, skeletal muscle 39.3%) 23 year old male and had a biometric screening yesterday and my numbers came out as follows: Total Cholesterol- 202 mg/dL Triglycerides: 242 mg/dL LDL: 110 md/dL HDL: 43 mg/dL. So, all of my numbers are pretty good except the Triglycerides. In the past weeks I have been traveling for work, so I have been eating less healthy (not making my own food) and have been rarely able to exercise. Could that be the reason for my high numbers or is there more likely a more serious reason for this?
Admin: Never rely on a single test report. eat healthy for a month and take another test.

My triglyceride lexel is high but my cholesterol is low. Needed information on lowering the triglyceride level.

Just rec'd results-Total chol 220, HDL 94(at one time was 122), LDL 114, Triglycerides 60. I am 71 & overweight. Would like to improve total.
Deborah Knapp, on Saturday, February 15th, 2014
My triglycerides were 372, Total Cholesterol 228, LDL 114 and HDL 40. I bought a treadmill and walk at least 15 minutes at a brisk pace, use truvia rather than sugar in my coffee, fat free milk, eat lots of fruit & green veggies, and no white rice or breads. Cholesterol is now 199, Triglycerides is 184, Hdl is 44 and LDL is 118. Not sure why LDL went up? But I am sticking with what I am doing and steadily increasing my exercise time. Get checked again in 3 months. Asthma and arthritis makes exercise difficult! But I think I am doing something right!!

My triglyceride reading went from 94 to 415 in a year. I started taking vyvanse for add. Wondering if this is the cause. I lost body fat and weight over the year so this is why I'm concerned.
Admin: May not be due to Vyvanse though it has many side effects.

I am tested with a 331mg/dL of triglyceride, my cholesterol is 213mg/dL, HDL 43mg/dL,LDL 104mg/dL. What should be my concern... is 300 mg/dL TG is a high risk factor for me? Please advice me.
Admin: Triglyceride 331mg/dL is high. You should limit on sugar intake,cakes, cookies, pastries, soft drinks, fruit drinks, processed foods, etc. Try reducing your weight, if overweight. Your HDL and LDL are OK, but total cholesterol slightly more. You may reduce eating foods with high saturated fats.

My Triglycerides level went from 269 to a whopping 770 in 11 months. Is this even possible or common? Should I get re-tested?
Admin: Triglycerides above 500 mg/dL is considered very high. It is not common to rise to such a high level in less than a year. You may have a second test. Very high triglyceride levels are a risk factor for heart attack, stroke, and peripheral artery disease.

I had a screening today my triglyeride reading was over 600. I have had a lot of stress over the last 2 years. I recently discovered I also have high blood pressure, are these two things related?
Admin: Yes some of the reasons for the two are the same, mainly stress, unhealthy eating and lack of exercise.

My wife triglycerides are 687, she is 39 years old. How concerned should I be? I can't seem to make her understand this is dangerous.
Admin: triglycerides level of 687 is dangerously high at any age. Please convince her to take advise of Doctors and follow the following tips: Keep a healthy weight, limit fats and sugars in diet, remain physically active and limit alcohol.
RAMESH, May 15th, 2013
Hi my triglycerides is 54 . Is it a problem; too low?? TOTAL CHOLESTROL 184, HDL= 54 AND LDL=111.
Tracy D, May 2nd, 2013
My lipid panel came back as "very good", chol/HDL ratio 3.3, chol 184, hdl 56, LDL 85, but triglycerides 213! I don't eat a lot of fat, probably eat too much sugar, but do drink a lot of coffee, how significant is caffeine? (I use cream, no sugar, and "cream is 1 part 1/2 and 1/2, 2 parts fat free 1/2 and 1/2, and 1 part skim milk, probably 6-8 cups a day.)
Admin: You should minimize use of sugar in any form (desserts, drinks, tea, coffee, soft drinks, etc)and foods made of refined flour like white bread.
Roger, on Saturday, February 23rd, 2013
My triglyceride level a year ago was 72. I just had a blood test, and the level was 173. I realized that I have been eating about a cup of roasted, salted nuts almost every night for the last year. I just checked the fat content on the cashews, Macadamias and peacans. They have to be the cause of the increase.
Pankaj Jha, on Wednesday, February 6th, 2013
Thank you very much for the info about Triglycerides.I have high level of this, so I need to read this article. Today my report is done by Ruban lab -- S Trig.-235 and VLDL is 47.
angel andrews, 7:21am on Tuesday, December 4th, 2012
Just had a blood panel done-all checked out in good numbers including my thyroid and white and red blood cells. My triglycerides were 230 and the only thing sugary I eat or drink is Milky way candy bars. My cholesterol is normal too. Just wondering why its so high.
Admin: Cut down the things like white bread and any soft drinks and juices.

This is some of the best information without getting too technical that I have read. Are you aware of this condition among people with multiple sclerosis?
