Although there is no direct correlation yet, the medical industry suspects a link between elevated triglycerides and increased risk of CAD. Triglycerides over 1000mg/dec are associated with an increased risk of pancreatitis.
FYI, alcohol consumption can have a significant effect on TG's.
My triglycerides were hovering around 1200 to 1400 and came down to 900 within 6 weeks after doing a liver flush. I'm going back for a follow up blood test tomorrow to see where my TG's are at right now (it's been about 5 or 6 weeks since my last test). I'll post a follow-up.
