New Analysis Shows Troubling Trend in Triglyceride Levels May Be Linked to Rising Rates of Obesity
Date:11/9/2008

uded that based on these findings, physicians and other healthcare professionals should closely monitor patients' triglyceride levels in an effort to improve preventive care. Patients, for their part, should be aware of all three lipids and work with their healthcare professionals to reach optimal lipid levels.

Study Methodology

Adults aged 20 to 74 years who took the blood lipid examination were selected from NHANES II (1976-1980), NHANES III (1988-1994), and NHANES 1999-2006. Adults missing values on total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol or triglycerides were excluded. Where LDL was missing, the Friedewald equation was used to calculate LDL for patients with TG < 400 and the Hattori equation was used to calculate LDL for patients with TG greater than or equal to 400.

Lipid levels were measured for the sample of adults with laboratory data who were examined in the morning and had fasted for 8.5 to 23 hours. High triglycerides and LDL and low HDL levels were characterized in the analysis as non-optimal, defined as greater than or equal to 150 mg/dL for triglycerides, < 40 mg/dL for HDL and greater than or equal to 100 mg/dL for LDL. Obesity was defined as BMI greater than or equal to 30 kg/m2.

This study was conducted by the National Lipid Association and analysis and research were performed by HealthCore, with the support of an independent grant from Abbott Laboratories.
