Elevated levels mean a person is suffering from hypertriglyceridemia. He or she has a high risk of cardiac diseases, and if associated with obesity, then this can add to diabetes and hypertension. Immediate modifications in lifestyle should be made to control the levels. Alternatively, statins might be started by your doctor.
Low levels are rare and rule out dyslipidemia.
Optimal levels mean the risk of heart disease is low or absent.
