Triglycerides

Triglycerides is a term used to refer to the circulating levels of fatty acids (similar in structure to dietary fatty acids, and Fat Mass) that can be measured via a blood test. Although crucial for energy usage, excessively high circulating Triglycerides is a risk factor for circulatory problems.
