Elevated Triglycerides on Vegan Diet

by Birgit
(Maine)

Last year I went vegan to reduce my cholesterol levels. Then I had a lipid profile and the cholesterol did come down, but the triglycerides went above normal. I never had a problem with elevated triglycerides until I went vegan. Can you tell me what foods can cause triglycerides to go up?

Michelle also submitted this similar question:

I've been vegan for a few months now, but when my blood test results came back, it said that I have high triglyceride levels and possible fatty liver. How is this possible?! I am not overweight at all either. In fact, I'm slightly underweight. I don't drink alcohol. I don't eat a lot of refined foods. I also have never ever had any of these problems!. And I always thought that I was deficient in iron, but the blood test said that I have high iron storage! What?!
