Were you looking for information about Triglycerides? Triglycerids is a common misspelling of triglycerides.
Triglycerides are very important for the overall functioning of the body. They are the main storage form of fat in the body and are used to create energy and serve as building blocks for cells. Triglycerides come from the fats in foods, but they are also made in the liver from protein and carbohydrates. A triglyceride level less than 150 mg/dL is ideal. High triglycerides (anything over 200 mg/dL) can increase the risk for heart disease.
