Triglycerides enter the circulation as the end-product of digesting dietary fat, and they are also synthesized by the liver. They are an important energy source for the body and are stored in fat cells. Elevated blood levels, or hypertriglyceridemia, often found in untreated diabetes and obesity, are an established indicator of atherogenic dyslipidemia. The National Cholesterol Education Program defines fasting triglyceride levels of 150 mg/dL or above as one of the diagnostic criteria for metabolic syndrome, although some studies have shown that fasting levels lower than 100 mg/dL should be considered as a more optimal cutoff in coronary heart disease risk assessment. The inflammatory state leading to the development of atherosclerosis may be triggered by “postprandial dysmetabolism,” a condition characterized by unusually high levels of glucose and triglycerides after a meal. Postprandial hypertriglyceridemia indicates the presence of remnant lipoproteins, which are believed to promote atherosclerosis, and it is also linked with insulin resistance and obesity. Several studies have found that triglyceride levels measured 2-4 hours after a meal are highly predictive of cardiovascular events, especially in women. Nonfasting levels >200 mg/dL are suggestive of postprandial dysmetabolism.
