Triglycerides : HDL ratio

Your triglyceride to HDL cholesterol (TG:HDL) ratio, an important heart health marker, is calculated by dividing your triglyceride level by your HDL cholesterol level. An imbalance in these essential fats is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, insulin resistance, and higher blood sugar levels, all of which can significantly impact not just longevity, but the number of years you spend in good health. The TG:HDL ratio therefore helps to build an even more comprehensive picture of your risk alongside other cholesterol markers.
