Hypertriglyceridemia, a condition in which triglyceride levels are elevated, is a common disorder in the United States. It is often caused or exacerbated by untreated diabetes mellitus, obesity, and sedentary habits, and is a risk factor for coronary artery disease. Additional risk factors for hypertriglyceridemia include diet, stress, physical inactivity, and smoking. More than 25% of US adults have elevated triglycerides.
Which of the following is true regarding the epidemiology of hypertriglyceridemia?
A. Triglyceride levels increase gradually in women until about age 50 years and then decline slightly.
B. Triglyceride levels in men continue to increase with age.
C. Mild hypertriglyceridemia (triglyceride level > 150 mg/dL) is slightly more prevalent in women beginning at age 30 years and in men starting at age 60 years.
D. People who are African American often have lower triglyceride levels than people who are Caucasian.
