These links between high triglyceride levels, diabetes and heart and blood vessel related disease indicate that lowering triglyceride levels should be a prime concern for all diabetics. The American Diabetics Association state that a triglyceride level of greater than or equal to 400 mg/dl puts people with diabetes at high risk for macrovascular disease, a level of 150-399 mg/dl puts them at borderline risk, and a level below 150 mg/dl puts them at low risk for macrovascular disease.
