Triglycerides are a type of fat found in the blood. They are the most common form of fat in the body and are a necessary source of energy. However, high levels of triglycerides can be a risk factor for heart disease and other health problems.

Triglycerides levels can be lowered through lifestyle changes such as eating a healthy diet, exercising, and avoiding smoking and excessive alcohol consumption. Medications can also be used to lower triglyceride levels if necessary.
