Triglycerides are fats. Triglycerides are ingested and are formed in the liver from excess glucose. The triglycerides are transported through the blood vessels and then stored as body fat. They stick to the walls of arteries and veins just like cholesterol and cause blockages.

Triglyceride levels in the blood must be kept within the normal range to help prevent heart disease and stroke. To prevent that too much triglycerides are produced, blood sugar levels must be controlled and high peaks of blood sugar must be avoided.

You need a well-balanced diet, avoid certain food and control your blood sugar.
