How to check your Triglycerides levels with a home fingerprick blood test kit

What Is A Triglycerides Test For?

A Triglycerides test is also known as a TRIG test.

Triglycerides are a form of dietary fat found in meats, dairy produce and cooking oils.

Unlike cholesterol, it is not certain whether triglycerides contribute to the risk of cardiovascular disease or whether underlying conditions such as diabetes or obesity are the problem.

However, there is evidence to suggest that this is the case so it is generally recommended to keep your blood levels low - especially if you are already at risk of cardiovascular disease.

What If Triglycerides Test Levels Are High?

What If Triglycerides Test Levels Are High?

There are many causes of high triglycerides, which include inhertiable traits, having a high fat or high sugar diet, high intake of alcohol, obesity and diabetes.

Healthier lifestyle changes to consider include:

  • Try to lower the saturated fat, trans fat, and cholesterol in your diet. Cutting back on carbohydrates should help too.
  • Eating more oily fish such as mackerel, sardines, tuna and salmon which are high in omega-3s, a fat that’s good for you. It may be hard to get enough omega-3s from food so you can also consider supplements.
  • Increased exercise & weight loss.  If you’re carrying extra pounds, especially around your belly, losing 5% to 10% of your weight can lower triglycerides. 
  • Reduced alcohol consumption. Not only is alcohol high in sugar and calories, it can have a significant effect on your triglyceride levels.

If these steps are insufficient your doctor may prescribe drugs to help reduce your triglyceride levels.
