Triglycerides are the chemical form in which most fat exists in food as well as in the body. In the human body, high levels of triglycerides in the bloodstream cause heart strokes. To get a healthy self avoid all fatty foods. Stop ghee and butter and dont do any deep frying.

Serum triglycerides are one type of fat present in blood (other type is cholesterol). Its normal range is less than 200 mg% and if it is more than 500mg% it require treatment with drugs. Between 200-500 mg%, restriction of all types of fatty and oily foods is required. Along with physical exercise... brisk walking at least 45 min a day is considered to be the best to reduce blood lipids (both cholesterol and triglycerides).
