What is Tg?

Triglycerides test is used to look for triglycerides, a type of fat (lipid) found in the blood. This test helps to assess the risks of developing blockages in heart and brain. Increased level of triglycerides may indicate major heart, kidney, or brain diseases.
People following a sedentary life style, unhealthy eating or those suffering from obesity are more prone to have elevated levels of triglycerides. It is crucial to establish an accurate diagnosis for triglyceride level to proactively mitigate the risks of stroke or major cardiovascular diseases.


Why is Tg done?

The Triglycerides test is done:

  • As part of a routine check-up to screen for lipid disorders
  • To predict the chances of heart disease, especially in the presence of risk factors
  • To monitor the effectiveness of lipid-lowering treatment


What does Tg Measure?

Triglycerides test measures the levels of triglycerides in the blood.

Triglycerides are a type of body fat (lipid). Chemically, triglycerides consist of three (“tri-“) molecules of fatty acid combined with a molecule of the alcohol glycerol (“-glyceride”).

High levels of triglycerides in the blood have been linked to atherosclerosis which increases the risk of heart disease (Coronary Artery Disease), peripheral artery disease, stroke and kidney disease. Atherosclerosis is a disease in which plaque (made up of fat, cholesterol, calcium, and other substances) builds up inside the arteries (blood vessels) resulting in narrowing of the lumen. This restricts the flow of blood to the organs and other parts of the body. Signs and symptoms of atherosclerosis usually do not appear until severe or total blockage of the artery (blood vessel). Therefore, most people are not aware of atherosclerosis until they have a medical emergency, such as a heart attack or stroke.

Increased levels of triglycerides may also be seen in Metabolic syndrome (cluster of metabolic risk factors for cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and stroke). Very high triglyceride levels can also cause inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis).

Triglycerides test is usually done as a part of lipid profile which includes other tests like cholesterol, HDL (High-density lipoprotein), LDL (Low-density lipoprotein), VLDL (Very low-density lipoprotein) also.


Interpreting Tg results



  • Normal — Less than 150 mg/dL (1.7 mmol/L)
  • Borderline high — 150 to 199 mg/dL (1.8 to 2.2 mmol/L)
  • High — 200 to 499 mg/dL (2.3 to 5.6 mmol/L)
  • Very high — 500 mg/dL or above (5.7 mmol/L or above)

Note:  Triglyceride levels remain temporarily elevated for a period after meals. Hence, fasting for 12 hrs is required before the test.
