Triglycerides

High performance assay for the measurement of Triglycerides

Clinical Significance

Triglyceride measurements are used in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases involving lipid metabolism and various endocrine disorders e.g. diabetes mellitus, nephrosis and liver obstruction.

High levels of triglycerides in the blood are associated with an increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease (CVD). Certain factors can contribute to high triglyceride levels, including lack of exercise, being overweight, smoking cigarettes, consuming excess alcohol, and medical conditions such as diabetes and kidney disease.

Triglycerides are another type of fat. They are composed of high-energy fatty acids, and provide much of the energy needed for your tissues to function.  Triglycerides are comprised of three fatty acids attached to a glycerol backbone
