Were you looking for information about Triglycerides? Trygliceride is a common misspelling of triglycerides.
Triglycerides, which are the main storage form of fat in the body, serve as building blocks for cells and are used to create energy. They are made in the liver from proteins and carbohydrates, and also come from the fats in foods (saturated and unsaturated fat). An ideal triglyceride level should be under 150 mg/dL. High triglycerides, which occur in about 10 percent of people, can increase your risk of developing heart disease or a heart attack.
