The Triglycerides blood test is used to determine triglyceride levels in the body. Triglycerides are a type of fat in the body that is mostly stored in fat cells. They narrow down blood vessels, further diminishing blood supply to an organ, causing cardiovascular diseases such as stroke and heart attacks. Raised Triglycerides levels are an independent risk factor for Coronary Heart Disease (CHD).Also known as the triacylglycerol test, the triglycerides test helps detect the risk of heart disease. Additionally, it helps in the diagnosis of atherosclerosis-related conditions such as kidney disease, diabetes mellitus, liver disease, and various endocrine disorders.
