    Very Low Triglycerides--below 50, What does it mean??

    I posted a few days ago with my lipid profile results which included
    triglycerides of 40
    At first I thought that might be good. But, the more reading I have done, it seems to possibly signal a lipid disorder. In fact there was a Heart and Lung Assoc. test calling for people with tri's under 50 to enroll in a study.
    Does anyone know anything about low tri's or have low tri's themselves??
    I read a cause could be hyperthyroid (I am hypo)
    or malnourishment and starvation-thankfully, these are not applicable.

    Well, I spent a bit of time searching. Found little on low triglycerides . But, when I found the technical term hypotriglyceridemia then I found the information that I think explains my TG level. A scholarly article theorizes that low fasting serum TG is a marker of autoimmune disorders-well this fits me I have hashimoto's thyroiditis and very high antibodies. My docs have usually said wow , that is great on my lipid profile-well I thought the TG situation is just odd and did some looking. Is there anyone else out there with very low TG????If so, do you have an AI disorder?

    I also have very low TRIG levels. Here are the results of my latest cholestrol screen. I am 34 years old, active, 6'5", 210 lbs. Last time I had a cholesterol screen about three years ago, the results were the very similar, although I think the TRIG was in the low 30s. I have no health problems and take no medication besides multivitamins/gloucosamine/Chondritin. Any info you have about this I would love to hear!

    TRIG - 37
    CHOL - 119
    HDLD - 38
    VLDL-calcu - 7
    LDL-calcu - 74
    Chol/HDLD - 3.1
