Triglycerides are another form of fat in your blood. Levels that are borderline high (150–199 mg/dL) or high (≥ 200 mg/dL) may need treatment in some people. If your triglyceride level is higher than 150 mg/dL, please talk with your doctor to learn ways to reduce your levels. A low-fat diet, maintaining a healthy weight, and regular exercise are steps you can take to get your cholesterol levels under control. You may also need to take medications depending on your other risk factors – your doctor can help you determine if medications are right for you.
