Abstract. Sepsis can increase in the amount of triglyceride as well as change in the functional and structural components of lipoproteins. The triglyceride level is directly proportional to the severity of sepsis and is associated with a systemic inflammatory response ..

Aim: To determine the correlation between the severity of bacterial sepsis with triglyceride level.

Methods: An observational study with case control design from January 2017 to March 2017 in 30 sepsis  and 30 non- sepsis infection patients at H. Adam Malik General Hospital Medan. The data collected by the entire sample to fill out PCT and triglyceride level on the 1st,3rd and 5th day and then analyzed using Mann-Whitney to assess their relationship.

Results: The triglyceride value in the sepsis group was 120 ± 5.1 mg / dl on day 1, non sepsis 117.53 ± 36.37mg / dl.However on the fifth day the sepsis group of triglyceride values was 124.2±50.29 mg/dl and the non sepsis group triglyceride values 134.03±68.12mg/ dl. Statistically showed no significant difference in triglyceride levels between sepsis and non sepsis groups

Conclusion: There was no significant relationship between the severity of sepsis and triglyceride value in patient with sepsis.
