Synopsis: The most recent scientific evidence suggests that triglycerides, like cholesterol, can be a significant factor in developing heart disease. Triglycerides are particles of fat made from food or manufactured in the body and then are carried through the bloodstream. Some studies show that people with elevated triglyceride levels are twice as likely to develop heart disease as those with lower levels. This comprehensive Q&A guide provides the latest information on triglycerides and how they relate to diet, exercise, cholesterol levels, and heart disease.

What is considered a safe triglyceride level?

What is the relationship between triglycerides and cholesterol?

Which foods are likely to raise your levels of triglycerides?

How does weight affect triglycerides?

Why are triglycerides referred to as the "new cholesterol?"

Why are high levels of triglycerides an important risk factor for heart disease--and why is this particularly true for postmenopausal women?

Are there any medications that reduce triglyceride levels?
