A Study of Serum Triglycerides in Relation to Nutritional Status in Myocardial Infarction and Hypertension
Interest in serum triglyceride concentrations in health and disease has been greatly stimulated since it has been shown that hyperlipemia may not only accelerate blood clotting, but also increase blood viscosity as well as producing increased-adhesiveness and aggregation of red blood cells. Close correlation has recently been shown between raised fasting serum triglyceride levels and the prevalence of ischaemic heart diseases by Albrink and Man. It has also been shown that variations in both the fat and carbohydrate composition of the diet may rapidly produce distinct changes in serum triglyceride concentrations with only-slight immediate effects on serum cholesterol and phospholipid levels.
