Triglycerides

Triglycerides are a type of fat found in your blood. You need some triglycerides for good health. But high levels of triglycerides are linked with a higher risk for coronary artery disease and other serious problems.

Your triglycerides are measured by the same blood test that measures your cholesterol.
