 The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Consensus Development Program: Triglyceride, High Density Lipoprotein, and ...
For triglyceride, the data are mixed; although strong associations are found in some studies, the evidence on a causal relation is still incomplete.
Triglycerides should also be measured where familial hyperlipidemic disorders are suspected and to follow the results of therapy when patients are treated for elevated triglycerides.
The triglyceride classification was subsequently modified in the NCEP Second Report of the Expert Panel on Detection, Evaluation, and Treatment of High Blood Cholesterol in Adults (Adult Treatment Panel II [ATP II], which developed updated, detailed, and widely adopted guidelines for the classification and management of hyperlipidemia.

 Milkshake Study Suggests Need for Reducing Desirable Triglyceride Levels
The new study evaluated the implications of “desirable” fasting triglyceride in 50 healthy, non-obese men and women with normal cholesterol levels, whose average age was 35.
After their fasting triglyceride was measured, each volunteer was given a milkshake, standardized at 70 grams of fat per square meter of body surface.
Triglyceride is a fat that always circulates in the blood, especially after a meal high in saturated fat.

 Triglyceride Test - Cholesterol: health and medical information about high cholesterol and heart disease   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The word "triglyceride" reflects the fact that a triglyceride consists of three ("tri-") molecules of fatty acid combined with a molecule of the alcohol glycerol ("-glyceride") that serves as the backbone of many types of lipids (fats).
Triglyceride levels are influenced by recent fat and alcohol intake.
High levels of triglycerides (greater than 200 mg/dl) are associated with a heightened risk of coronary heart disease.

 STUDY FINDS “NORMAL” TRIGLYCERIDE LEVELS ARE RISKY
“Previously, nobody thought triglyceride was a major risk factor at these lower levels,” says Michael Miller, M.D., director of Preventive Cardiology at the University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore and an associate professor of medicine at the University of Maryland School of Medicine.
Triglyceride is a type of fat that is always circulating in the blood, especially after a meal high in saturated fat.
Triglycerides have also been shown to increase the risk of blood clots, which combine with fatty deposits in the coronary vessels to cause heart attacks.

 Triglyceride
Triglycerides are esterified fatty oils that forms the core of chylomicrons and VLDL cholesterol.
Triglycerides and cholesterol both measure the total amount of lipoproteins in the serum, which can be a rough indicator of risk for cardiovascular disease.
A triglyceride count of 100 or more increased the relative risk of a new cardiovascular event by 50% and reduced the chance of surviving a subsequent heart attack.

 Triglyceride level | Health Library | Walgreens
Triglycerides are often measured as a reflection of fat (lipid) ingestion and metabolism, or as part of an evaluation of coronary risk factors.
Triglycerides comprise the largest proportion of fats (lipids) in the diet, in the adipose tissue, and in the blood.
The remaining triglycerides, plus additional triglycerides synthesized within the liver, are then re-packaged as VLDL and secreted into the blood from the liver.

 Triglycerides
Triglycerides are the chemical form in which most fat exists in food as well as in the body.
Triglycerides in plasma are derived from fats eaten in foods or made in the body from other energy sources like carbohydrates.
Calories ingested in a meal and not used immediately by tissues are converted to triglycerides and transported to fat cells to be stored.

 Do Triglyceride Tests Really Help Predict Heart Disease?
Doctors aren't going to stop measuring triglycerides, because the information is used to calculate levels of LDL cholesterol -- the bad kind of cholesterol, which does predict risk of future heart disease.
We just haven't been able to get our arms around triglyceride measurements, and that suggests to me that it is not really a good test." Rubins is chief of general internal medicine at the Minneapolis VA Medical Center.
"Triglycerides are a marker for multiple risk factors for heart disease." He adds that they are a marker for heart disease, not necessarily a cause of the disease.

 Lipoprotein Subfraction Changes in Normal Pregnancy: Threshold Effect of Plasma Triglyceride on Appearance of Small, ...
In AM, the plasma triglyceride concentration at the three gestational time points were 1.5, 1.6, and 2.4 mmol/L, respectively.
In CH, the triglyceride values at the three gestational time points were 0.75, 0.95, and 1.70 mmol/L, respectively, and in this case, although total area under the curve increased, reflecting increased LDL mass, no perturbation in the pattern was observed.
This graph demonstrates the relationship between plasma triglyceride (mmol/L) and serum estradiol (nmol/L) in each of the 10 subjects as pregnancy progressed.

The fibrates primarily affect triglyceride metabolism and consequently have the greatest effects on triglyceride and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) levels.
The latter is mediated by peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR)-α and is due to increased synthesis of lipoprotein lipase and apolipoprotein (apo) A-I. Slide 2 of 17
Similarly, in the subgroup of patients with triglyceride levels of 500-1500 mg/dl (Group B), which would primarily be patients with type V hyperlipidemia, fenofibrate 100 mg TID decreased triglyceride and VLDL-C and increased HDL-C. However, LDL-C was also significantly increased in these patients.

 An Apolipoprotein that Strongly Modulates Plasma Triglyceride Levels
Summary: Scientists at Berkeley Lab have found a new apolipoprotein gene that greatly influences both human and mouse triglyceride and VLDL levels, both of which are a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease.
Human ApoAV polymorphisms were found to be strongly associated with triglycerides in the general population, consistent with their findings in mouse studies.
Furthermore, Rubin and Pennacchio were able to replicate their initial result, which supports the finding that about one in five individuals in the population has increased triglycerides due to variation in the human ApoAV gene.
