Triglyceride and VLDL levels low
Hello,

I'm writing to see if anyone has any insights on low triglyceride and VLDL levels. Here are mine from a recent blood draw:
Triglycerides: 45mg/dl (normal range 50-150)
VLDL: 9 mg/dl (normal range 10-31)

My sodium level was also mildly low: Sodium: 133 mmol/L (normal range 134-145). My doctor ordered a second sodium test and it came back normal: 138 mmol/L. He made no mention of the low trig and VLDL levels. He thought I was mildly dehydrated during the first draw, which is was the likely causes of my sodium level dropping.

Anyone have any experience with low triglycerides? I know high levels are the typical issue, but I doubt low levels are desirable. Thanks!

Matt,

Thanks for the question, your TGL's are a little low, but not much. In fact, it would fall within the normal variant range so your doctor is most likely not very concerned. Even after a fast, your lipids will change so if you tested again tomorrow you may well be over 50 and considered normal. Your VDL is simply your TGL/5 or 20% of your total TGL level. Most people would love to have your number.

Hope this helps,

Jon
