In older women, the relationship between high triglycerides, low HDL cholesterol and heart disease is quite strong. In fact, it is so strong that a high triglyceride level in post- menopausal women is now consid- ered by many as an independent risk factor for heart disease.

After menopause, most women nor- mally have a decrease in HDL choles- terol and an increase in LDL choles- terol. These changes in LDL and HDL cholesterol are linked to heart disease and higher triglyceride levels. High triglycerides, whether in women or men, could indicate abnormalities or could simply reflect changes in blood lipoproteins and cholesterol that we all experience with age. If a person has high triglycerides and a low HDL level, he or she likely needs further examination by a physician. "inc. rebate & comm. cert. • What should I do? First, before having blood drawn for a triglyceride check, it is absolutely essential that you fast several hours (preferably overnight). Fasting is not necessary to measure cholesterol, but it is for triglycerides. Second, have the test repeated. Triglyceride levels can vary so you'll want to be sure your mea- surement is accurate. Third, tell your physician to also measure LDL and HDL cholesterol. A triglyceride mea- surement by itself is useless unless accompanied by a complete lipopro- tein cholesterol determination. • Only alter learning your levels of these fats, can you make an informed health decision. The treatment for high triglycerides is similar to the treatment for high cholesterol: quit smoking, control blood pressure, lose weight, and exercise regularly. Since studies over the years have shown that high carbohydrate diets tend to raise triglyceride levels, the health care provider may also give specific dietary advice. Remember--both triglycerides and cholesterol increase as we age; so the decisions about whether and how to treat high levels nmst be made on an individual basis.
