Were you looking for information about Triglycerides? Triglicerides is a common misspelling of triglycerides.
Triglycerides store fat and are used by the body to create energy and to serve as building blocks for cells. They come from saturated and unsaturated fats in foods, and they are also made in the liver from carbohydrates and proteins.
Although the body needs some triglycerides, high levels in the blood can be a serious health problem and a risk factor for heart disease. About 10 percent of the population has this problem, and the risk is higher in men and Caucasians. For most people, a normal level is anything under 150 mg/dL.
