The Federal Center for Health Awareness said that triglycerides are a type of fat found in the blood and provide the body with energy.
He noted that the body absorbs most triglycerides from dietary fats and can also make triglycerides on its own.
The German center added that if too many triglycerides are ingested, the body stores them in fatty tissues, which poses a health risk; Because a high level of this fat in the body increases the risk of heart attack and stroke.
Several factors increase triglyceride levels in the blood: obesity, lack of exercise, high-calorie diet, poorly controlled diabetes, hypothyroidism, kidney disease, smoking, and excessive alcohol consumption.
Some medications, such as steroids and birth control pills, can also raise triglyceride levels.
High triglyceride levels can be lowered through healthy nutrition, i.e. reducing sugar and avoiding prepared and frozen foods because they contain harmful trans fats.
In addition to reducing saturated fats found in red meat, poultry, cheese, and milk, and eating healthy unsaturated fats found in olive oil and various nut oils, along with regular exercise and motor activities and stop smoking.
