Were you looking for information about Triglycerides? Tryglycerides 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. While triglycerides come from the fats in foods, they are also made in the liver from carbohydrates and proteins. Although the body needs some triglycerides, high levels in the blood can be dangerous. High triglycerides may not cause problems over days, weeks, or months. But over years, they can increase your chances for heart disease or a heart attack. For most people, a normal triglyceride level is anything under 150 mg/dL.
