Maybe you've been eating fast food often than you should, or you're not getting your recommended two-and-ahalf hours of exercise each week. Or, it could be that you smoke, your blood pressure is too high. Well, for whatever reason, you may be concerned about your risk of heart disease. Well, few tests can help you learn that risk, so you can start making healthy lifestyle changes reduce it. Coronary risk profile is group of blood tests that measure your cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Why is it important know these levels? Because if you have too many of these substances in your blood from foods like burgers and French fries, they can clog your arteries. Eventually, your arteries can become so clogged that you'll have heart attack or stroke. Men should have their cholesterol test by time they're 35. Women should have checked by age 45. If you have condition like Diabetes, heart disease, stroke, or high blood pressure, have your cholesterol checked now, no matter what your age. To measure your cholesterol, your doctor will give you blood test. If you're also having your triglyceride level check, you may be told not to eat or drink anything for 8 to 12 hours before test. Depending upon your heart risk, doctor may measure just your cholesterol level, or your total cholesterol along with your LDL, or bad cholesterol, HDL, or good cholesterol, and triglycerides. If you're at average risk of getting heart disease, your goal is to have total cholesterol of than 200 milligrams per deciliter, LDL cholesterol lower than 130 milligrams per deciliter, HDL cholesterol higher than 40 milligrams per deciliter if you're man, or 50 if you're woman-higher better, and triglycerides of less than 150 also, lower better. Although some illnesses, arthritis, can raise your cholesterol level, generally having high cholesterol means that you're at increased risk for heart disease and stroke. It's sign you need to work harder keep your heart healthy. If your levels are normal, that's great! That means that you're eating right, exercising, and you're taking good care of your health. You don't need to have another cholesterol test about five years. But if your cholesterol level high, or you've already got heart disease, high blood pressure, or Diabetes, you'll need to have your cholesterol levels checked more often. Keeping close tabs on your cholesterol and triglyceride levels is one way that you can take charge of your health, and change it for better.

Triglyceride level

Triglycerides are not only stored in fat cells and tissues, theyre also carried around body as passengers in these particles. This is what is measured in lab tests called fasting plasma triglycerides or fasting serum triglycerides: concentration of triglycerides within apolipoprotein particles travelling through bloodstream. This lab test usually occurs after overnight fast because if triglyceride levels measured after short meal instead they will be much higher, thus more so reflecting that particular meal rather than general baseline metabolic state. Taking test after fasting makes it easier to compare triglyceride levels of different people fairly-everyone is fast for test. Interestingly, Robb Wolf speculates that extending overnight fast to about 14-16 hours for people on low-carb or ketogenic diets is simple precaution. Why? Slowly digesting large fatty meal could still drip feed triglycerides from gut into blood-bound particles. Idea has leg to stand on! Although triglycerides are measured when fasting, that doesnt mean that they do somewhat reflect quality of diet. Triglyceride levels are responsive to poor food choices and reflect chronic insults accruing over time that are mal-adaptive to one's health, longevity and performance. In fact, some doctors use fasting triglycerides blood tests to double-check whether or not their patients are actually following their advice to significantly lower their total dietary carbohydrates and entirely remove worst sources like refined starches adding sugars. Clearly, fasting blood triglycerides have lot to teach us about our current state of health; it is even included as 1 of 5 criteria for Metabolic Syndrome, which is pernicious physiological state from which many diseases like diabetes, Alzheimers and obesity can grow out of. Opposite Of Metabolic Syndrome Is Often Considered To Be Metabolic Flexibility. At level of organs and bloodstream this desirable metabolic quality is smooth cycling of triglycerides between liver and adipose tissue, both attentively listening to all cells shouting their moment-to-moment and longer term energy needs. Although triglycerides are well-understood health marker, discoveries are still being made about them-like fact that they can reach our brains in small amounts by crossing blood brain barrier.

Takeaways

Triglycerides are fats that you absorb from food or create in liver, often from sugars. High triglyceride levels increase risk of heart disease and diabetes. Build-up triglycerides can damage and clog blood vessels, reduce fat burning in cells, and increase fat storage in liver. High levels are often accompanied by increase in LDL cholesterol and drop in HDL cholesterol, detrimental combination for your heart and overall health. Your diet and weight have huge impact on your levels. Diets high in high-carbohydrate, low-fat diets, and obesity increase triglycerides. Vitamin D deficiency, smoking, underactive inflammation, genetics, and certain medications and diseases can also raise your levels.
