Other results?: Normal triglyceride levels are up to 150 (U.S. standard). Levels over 500 are considered very high and might be related to other medical conditions (such as diabetes). When a lab value is out of range, it's often a good idea to repeat the test to confirm the result and to explore possible causes. Check with your doctor to assess and address this further. https://medlineplus.gov/labtests/triglyceridestest.html
