Hannda, please be clear about what is triglyceride. All , repeat, all dietary fat,whether it comes from vegetable or from animal source, are 95% triglycerides. It is misconception that certain fat and oils don't contain TG.

Hannda analysing a lipid profile is not so easy. If you go by reference value ,certain things become very obvious. But actual interpretation is difficult,as these lipids are not representative of true picture. So if you say VLDL is high, it does not signify that it is bad. All lipids are sub divided ( using term only to simplify ) into sub category.so neither all VLDL is bad nor very high HDL is always good.

I am new to these terms. With my present profile where to Start?

Forget about lipid profile,though it is all in disarray. The easiest way to bring it back is through life style management,which includes a modification in your diet,physical activity and stopping of certain habits eg smoking and minimising alcohol.

What modification is required can only be suggested ,if your diet and other things are known.

What is VLDL(TG/5) - i dont understand the technical language. Could you pls let me know what that means ?

Under which condition should 295 not be a concern?

By the way , what about liver function test ? It will be interesting to see the results.

High triglycerides can be lowered with dietary changes provided you are not genetically predisposed to high triglycerides (hypertriglyceridemia). Lowering carb and processed food consumption will help in lowering triglycerides.

TG/HDL ratio is indicating insulin resistance. (Yours is 6.28. It has to be <3.5 and best if <2).

Your total cholesterol is low and LDL is too low. Are you on statin drug?
