Reference Range

Triglyceride is an ester composed of a glycerol bound to three fatty acids. It is the main constituent of vegetable oil and animal fats. The primary function of triglycerides is to store energy in adipocytes and muscle cells. HIGH levels of triglycerides in the blood are associated with an increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease (CVD). In addition, elevations in triglycerides levels can be secondary to disorders such as diabetes, nephrosis, biliary obstruction and metabolic disorders associated with endocrine disturbances.
