Test Code:
TRIGR

Order Name:
Triglycerides

 
 
Clinical Information:
Triglycerides are a family of lipids absorbed from the diet and produced endogenously from carbohydrates and fatty acids. Measurement of triglyceride is important in the diagnosis and management of hyperlipidemia. These diseases can be genetic or secondary to other disorders including nephrosis, diabetes mellitus, and endocrine disturbances. The National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP) cites evidence that triglycerides are an independent risk factor for atherosclerosis. Individuals with hypertension, obesity, and/or diabetes are at greater risk than are those without these conditions. The Adult Treatment Panel of the NCEP recommends that all adults 20 years of age and over should have a fasting lipoprotein profile (total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, and triglyceride) once every five years to screen for coronary heart disease risk.
 
Reference Value:
<150 mg/dL
 
Interpretation:
In the presence of other coronary heart disease risk factors, both borderline-high (150-199 mg/dL) and high values (>200 mg/dL) require attention.

Triglyceride concentrations above 1,000 mg/dL can lead to abdominal pain and may be life-threatening due to chylomicron-induced pancreatitis.
