Summary:
For the first time, researchers have shown that high triglycerides – a type of blood fat – are a strong independent predictor of a person’s risk for stroke, according to a report in Circulation: Journal of the American Heart Association. “High triglycerides are associated with ischemic stroke and transient ischemic attacks (TIA),” says David Tanne, M.D., lead author of the study. “To the best of our knowledge, this study is the first to indicate that high triglycerides expose heart disease patients to increased risk for stroke beyond cholesterol.”
