Introduction: Hypertriglyceridemia is asso-ciated with many risk factors that elevate the incidence of cardiovascular and diab-etes diseases. Therefore, informing the pre-valence of hypertriglyceridemia may be helpful for health authorities to make pro-grams for controlling of the condition. Aim of this present study was to obtain an ov-erall estimation of hypertriglyceridemia and trend of the condition in Iran. Materials & Methods: Using some valid keyword including triglycerides, prevale-nce, and meta-analysis in the databases of Googles choolar, SID, Pubmed, Magiran, Irandoc, Medlib and Iranmedex a total of 155 articles were collected. From the articles, 24 articles were reliable and inclu-ded in the study. Variance of each study was obtained using the binomial distrib-ution. Heterogeneity of the studies was assessed using I2 index, and the data were analyzed using random effects model and the STATA V. 11 software. Findings: Collectively, 24 articles were enrolled in this study. The overall preva-lence of hypertriglyceridemia was obtained 36.6%. Prevalence of hypertriglyceridemia was estimated as follow: In general popula-tion, 27.2% (95 CI: 21.1-33.3), in diabetic population 62.1% (95% CI: 51.1-73.2), in patients with heart disease 35.2% (95% CI: -6.9-77.4) and in other patient groups (me-tabolic syndrome, obesity, impaired glucose tolerance, or benign vertigo) 36.7% (95% CI: 25.8-47.7). Discussion & Conclusion: The prevalence of hypertriglyceridemia was low in general population in Iran, however, incidence of the condition was higher in patients with diabetic and cardiovascular diseases. So the health authorities should provide relevant programs to control the disorder.
