Triglycerides are very sensitive to recent diet so you may want to re-check that after an overnight fast (10-12 hours). Your story is impressive-glad you have regained fat on your new regimen. Yor glucose level is fairly good so the focus needs to be on your modest triglyceride elevation (Stocrine can aggravate that as can genetic and many other factors). KH
