How high are the triglycerides in the blood?

The measurement of triglycerides in the blood alone is not very meaningful. Only in connection with the cholesterol values ​​can a lipid metabolism disorder be diagnosed.

As a rule of thumb, a triglyceride level of 150 mg / dL (1.7 mmol / L) should not be exceeded. This is especially true for people with other risk factors for heart and vessels. Overweight, lack of exercise or diabetes, the compliance with the 150s limit is even more important.

If there are no such other risks and you live reasonably healthy (balanced diet, exercise, etc.), triglyceride levels between 150 and 200 mg / dl are also okay. Everything about it is definitely too high. And anything above 500 mg / dl is acutely dangerous.

Background Triglycerides

The triglycerides are often underestimated in importance because all the world speaks only of cholesterol. But they are just as important. And in doubt just as dangerous. About 90% of the dietary fats we eat are triglycerides.

Basic structure of triglycerides

Like cholesterol, they serve as energy stores and can also be formed by the liver if necessary. So long as they are not supplied in excess, they are a completely normal and vital part of the metabolism.

Incidentally, if blood triglyceride levels are to be determined, it is important to eat at least 12 hours in advance. Alcohol should be avoided even three days before. Ignoring this, too high values ​​are measured.

Another tip on nutrition and weight

In everyday life, many people find it difficult to eat a balanced and balanced diet. And holding on to weight does not always work so well. We often recommend a special one in this contextHealth juicewhose effectiveness has been scientifically proven and which additionally minimizes the cravings for the food. One spoon per day covers all important nutrients (vitamins, also vitamin D for osteoporosis, minerals, etc.), one bottle is sufficient for about 50 days.

My blood levels for triglycerides are 3.11 (with a reference value of 0.56 - 1.68). I find no evidence about that, obviously quite different tolerance values ​​apply. Why that?

Hello Kirsten, the LaVita juice you can not buy in free trade, but only on the homepage of Lavita
I think I have to do with the natural ingredients and the durability. I can only recommend it, we have been drinking it for a long time and we are very satisfied! Greeting Susanne

Good day,
Today, my blood was measured in platelets 526 (it was 1.8 million times, I have been eating curcumin for years).
There were also measured 376 mg / dl triglycerides.
Question 1: Is there a connection?
Question 2: How can I reduce triglycerides? I have not smoked for 36 years, drink 1 small sherry every 4 weeks. No sugar in the coffee, hardly any chocolate. 73 years, 68 kg, 178 cm.
Thanks and greetings, Marie Helene Harlegard - [email protected]
