Triglycerides are a type of fat that is found in the body. They are the most common type of fat and are a major source of energy. When you eat your body uses the calories it needs for quick energy. It converts excess calories into triglycerides and stores then in fat cells to use later. In normal amounts, triglycerides are very important to good health. However, having high triglyceride levels may increase a person’s risk of developing coronary artery disease (CAD). Very high triglycerides may lead to pancreatitis in certain people.
