What do I Need to do to Prepare for the Test and What do the Results Mean?

Triglycerides

Type of fat in your body. If you eat more calories than you need, the extra calories are changed into triglycerides. These triglycerides are stored in your fat cells for later use. When your body needs energy, triglycerides are released into your bloodstream to provide fuel for your muscles to work. If you eat more calories than you burn off, especially calories from carbohydrates and fats, you may get high triglyceride levels in your blood. High triglycerides may put you at greater risk for a heart attack or stroke.

What do I Need to do to Prepare for the Test?

You may need to fast (not food or drink) for 12 hours before your blood is drawn. Your health care provider will let you know if you need to fast and if there are any special instructions to follow.

What do the Results Mean?

  • Normal Range (Blood Spot): <150 mg/dl
  • Borderline High: 150-199 mg/dl
  • High: 200-499 mg/dl
  • Very High: >500 mg/dl

Higher than normal triglyceride levels may put you at risk for heart disease. To reduce your levels and lower your risk, your health care provider may recommend lifestyle changes and/or prescribe medicines.

Cholesterol

A waxy, fat-like substance that’s found in all the cells in your body. Your liver makes cholesterol, and it is also in some foods, such as meat and dairy products. Your body needs some cholesterol to work properly. But if you have too much cholesterol in your blood, you have a higher risk of coronary artery disease.

What do the Results Mean?

  • Normal Range (Blood Spot): <200 mg/dl
HDL

Stands for high-density lipoproteins. It is called the “good” cholesterol because it carries cholesterol from other parts of your body back to your liver. Your liver then removes the cholesterol from your body.
