  Increased Risk of Ischemic Stroke

For every percentage your triglyceride level drops, so can your chance of stroke.

Researchers have linked high levels of triglycerides to a greater risk of stroke in people with heart disease.

The blood triglyceride levels of more than 11,000 middle-aged and older patients with coronary heart disease were measured. Patients were then monitored for up to 8 years for signs of ischemic stroke, or transient ischemic attack (TIA) - the most common type of stroke, caused by lack of blood flow to the brain.

    The researchers found that those with high blood triglyceride levels (over 200 mg/dL, or 2.3 mmol/L) were almost three times more likely than others in the study to suffer an ischemic stroke, or TIA.

These results held even after they considered other factors -- known to affect the risk of stroke -- like:

  • cholesterol levels
  • age
  • smoking status, and
  • medical history.

A Plausible Explanation

Here is a plausible explanation for these findings:

Ischemic stroke, or brain attack results from a type of blood vessel disease similar to heart disease -- both are the end result of arteries damaged and narrowed by plaque. (Strokes which occur when a clot or narrowed artery cuts off the brain's blood supply, account for about 80 per cent of all strokes. The other 20 per cent are due to broken blood vessels in the brain).

Triglyceride-filled particles contribute to the fatty deposits that build up along artery walls, and high triglycerides may make blood cells more likely to clot, setting the stage for a stroke.

The authors note that everyone in this current study had a history of heart disease, which may have amplified the health impact of high triglyceride levels.

It is no surprise to see this. Thus, one who has an elevated triglyceride level, which affects blood vessels in the brain, would have an increased risk of stroke. However, there much more to this.

Test and Re-Test Your Triglycerides from Home

Even when your triglycerides are way up - off the chart at 800 mg/dL, or >9.0 mmol/L - you can't tell. There's no symptom. And that's what makes it so scary. Because no one feels badly with high triglycerides, a lot of people simply have no clue!

The only way you know you might have a problem that needs to be attended to is to get the blood test. As a matter of fact, triglyceride count test is the test everybody gotta have at least once a year.

But there's even more to it. You should absolutely know your triglyceride level, if you have symptoms of the metabolic syndrome X, in other words, if you

  • are overweight
  • eat too many refined or simple carbohydrates (white bread, pasta, cakes, etc.),
  • have a history of heart disease or high blood pressure, or
  • have a genetic predisposition to cardiovascular health problems.

Don't have your better lipid health prompted just by panic!

Home Collected Triglycerides Test, a simple, FDA-approved, clinical laboratory analysis that measures the amount of the following lipids in your blood:

  • triglycerides
  • total cholesterol
  • HDL (“good”) cholesterol, and
  • calculated LDL (“bad’) cholesterol.

Are You Stressed?

Prolonged stress is one of the main causes of elevated blood triglycerides.

A new study has found the evidence that psychological, mental stress causes triglycerides to stay in the bloodstream longer contributing to cardiovascular health problems (Psychophysiology, 2002: 39; 80-85).

The stress factor, however, has been repeatedly underestimated with regards to elevated blood lipids (fats).
