The generic range of triglycerides varies according to age and laboratory.
These measures allow us to know accurately the levels of triglycerides through a simple analytical:
- Normal – Less than 150 mg / dl
- High limit – 150 to 199 mg / dl
- High – 200 to 499 mg / dl
- Very high – 500 mg / dl or higher to this level
High levels of triglycerides, also called hypertriglyceridemia, can cause diseases in the pancreas, liver and spleen. If fatty deposits form on the skin, they can cause heart attacks and cerebrovascular injuries.
The triterpenes of Ganoderma lucidum help us to reduce the levels of triglycerides in the blood. There are several studies that demonstrate its anti-inflammatory and lipid-lowering action .
An experiment carried out with several groups of mice with high levels of cholesterol and triglycerides, after providing one of the groups Ganoderma lucidum it was found that the functions of the body had returned to normal after controlling the excessive level of triglycerides and cholesterol in blood . Those who did not have treatment died.
With which it is concluded that the treatment of this fungus plays an important role in the control of thrombosis, cholesterol and triglycerides, preventing the formation of fat in the liver .
How can we avoid hypertriglyceridemia?
- We must lead a healthy life, control our diet and exercise daily. After a study conducted for four years to consumers of the Mediterranean diet, it was found that these people were more protected from heart diseases and cancer. So their chances of death from heart problems were minor 
- We must avoid being overweight. An excessive consumption of calories potentiates the increase of triglycerides in our blood.
- Control the consumption of alcohol and sugar.
- We must avoid certain medications. Contraceptives, steroids and most diuretics increase triglycerides.
