I am a 33-year-old unmarried female with no disease ever diagnosed. I live a sedentary lifestyle with very little or no exercise. I do not smoke, and I do not diet, I am taking normal oily currys with bread. Recently I got my lipid profile done and saw that my triglycrides are 30. Is it severly low? Am I at a risk of heart stroke or brain hemorrhage? Or do I have undiagnosed cancer or just malabsorbtion? Can you tell me which tests should I get done in order to diagnose the cause?
