Hypertriglyceridemia is the condition that is characterized by high levels of triglycerides in the blood. Triglycerides are a type of fat that can cause hardening in the arteries, also known as atherosclerosis. Your arteries are usually smooth and unobstructed, but as you age, a sticky substance called plaque forms in your arteries. Plaque is made up of triglycerides and other materials that circulate in your blood. As more plaque builds up, your arteries can narrow and stiffen which can eventually lead to reduced blood flow. Atherosclerosis can increase your risk of heart disease, stroke, and other vascular diseases.
