What tests are there to find out triglycerides ?

I have borderline high triglycerides (191), high hdl (76) and slightly high ldl (104). I work out moderately hard to very hard for 4-6 hours per week. I eat mostly whole grains, fruits & veggies, lowfat dairy, lean meats. I do like desserts, and occasionally eat a high fat treat. I almost never drink alcohol. I am female, 44, 5 2 , 106 lbs.--definitely not overweight . My doc recommends dietary changes and exercise, but I don t think she realizes how much I already do. I can only imagine my numbers if my activity level and diet were that of the average American. Is it possible that I have a genetic condition which predisposes me to high triglycerides? What tests would I take to find out?

Thanks for query,
You have got high your work and your food it looks like that you might have genetic tendency.
Still go for strict regime of fat and carbohydrate.
Avoid fried and junk food.
Even if you are doing work still you require exercise,like running,swimming.
You may take medicine for reducing triglycerides from your doctor.
ok and bye,
