These are blood transport fats, consisting mainly of triglycerides (made from sugar by the liver) and loosely covered in specialized proteins and phospholipids so they don't dissolve in the blood and the target tissues can recognize them.  Chronic elevation occurs when the tissues cannot absorb them or the liver is overwhelmed by carbohydrates, such as in alcoholism, some hepatitis, and diabetes.
