My triglycerides were tested in December and were @ 500.
Patient :My triglycerides were tested in December and were @ 500. In January I was retested and they tripled. My numbers are right at 2000. I am recently pregnant and wonder if being pregnant with twins can cause this drastic change.
Thanks for the query,
Triglycerides levels are unrelated to pregnancy and solely related to liver functions and its function to metabolize it. Please visit your physician soon for a liver function test and get completely evaluated for a possible liver disease.
Wishing you good health,
