Yes, if it is very rich in fats/lipids
Hi and thank you so much for this query.
I am so sorry to hear about this high levels of triglycerides. This is really borderline high and does not represent any immediate threat to good health. However, taking active measures to address any further increase in its levels is a great idea.
This test is normally done after 9-12hours of fasting in order to be able to compare to the standards. If this is the case, then we are good to interpret them as they are without any fear of any misrepresentation.
If the pizza you eat has a high lipid content, then it would be helpful to drive down the triglycerides numbers. I generally discourage patients from eating lots of fast food because it is rarely balanced enough to provide all the necessary nutrient we need in the right proportions. Home prepared meals are good but having a slice of pizza from time to time is good.
I wish you well and hope this addresses your query fully. Feel free to ask for more clarifications and related questions if need be.
Am glad to hear you would be limiting how much of the Pizza you eat as you rightly say it contains so much oil. This would be very helpful to wish.
