A member asked:

Biometric screening. i'm 31. triglycerides =290,hdl=53,ldl=112,total cholesterol=223, cholestrol/hdl ratio=4.2,glucose=99,bp 111/74. tri high. why?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

May never find "why": I'm going to assume that this is fasting sample. A lot of this is hereditary. There's not a consensus about what to do with high triglycerides when other lipids seem okay. One idea is to spend a few months exercising like you did as a teenager and then checking. I bet you'll see things change for the better. Best wishes.
