Answer

Alcohol consumption should also be severely limited or abstained; consuming more than 1 standard alcoholic drink per day may worsen hypertriglyceridemia. In March 2011, the American Dietetic Association published updated evidence-based guidelines for nutrition practice for disorders of lipid metabolism.
