High Tryglycerides

Jul 5, 2002

For the past 8 years (i'm 38 male)it seems that every blood test I have comes back with high tryglycerides around 195 and i'm told they should be around 150 (whatever that means) I thought I was told that high Tryglycerides could just prove that I was following the doctors order when they told me to fast for 12 hours before the test. But those who do the test always say I have to cut back on fried food. I hardly ever fry anything. I'm in Arizona so mostly I grill outside! I sometimes use little olive oil when cooking sauces. For me to cut back would really be to stop it all. Could you please clearify this for me! Thank you!!
