    My husband was told his triglyceride level is 760, could it be from his testosterone replacement drug, Androgel?

    Does he have a triglyceride reading from before taking the androgel?

    I really don't know the of there is any relationship between testosterone replacement and triglyceride levels, but I doubt if there is one.

    However, I would not be surprised to find out that some conditions that cause a reduction in testosterone also affects the triglyceride levels.
