Genetic abnormalities in the process of formation or regulation of triglyceride levels in the body Metabolic disorders such as diabetes mellitus type 1 or 2, thyroid hormone deficiency (hypothyroidism), nephrotic syndrome Side effects of certain drugs Other causes such as excessive consumption of alcohol or carbohydrates, pancreatic inflammation ( acute pancreatitis), obesity and etc. Therapeutic reduction in triglyceride levels is basically a combination of lifestyle changes and may also require the use of certain drugs to maximize therapy in order to achieve the target of reducing triglyceride levels in accordance with internationally accepted recommendations. Regarding the use of triglyceride-lowering drugs themselves must be based on instructions and doctor's advice, it is not recommended to take these drugs alone without doctor's advice.
