WHY SHOULD I PERFORM THE TEST?
The level of triglycerides in the blood is strictly correlated to the cardiovascular risk. Blood triglycerides level is affected by diet habits and by your body’s metabolic state as well as your genetic makeup. A high triglycerides level in conjunction with high total cholesterol is one of the risk factors of heart disease. However, other risk factors which can increase the likelihood of heart disease are smoking, high blood pressure, un-balanced diet high in saturated fat, obesity, insufficient exercise, as well as alcohol abuse and diabetes. Values above 5.1 mmol/L (200 mg/dL) are considered high risk. The measuring range is: 0.56 – 5.6 mmol/L (50-500 mg/dL).
