Thanks for your query on Healthcaremagic.

Your triglyceride level is really high. Its good to have 45 minutes walk everyday and diet modification. Ithink along with these some medication will also be help to you. You can take atorvastatin 10 mg or rosuvastatin 5 mg at bed time to start with and dose may be titrated as per response.

Yes your triglyceride level may be normal if you maintained this life style. But its more important to have a controlled range of triglycerides.

For pin point chest pain though it is diagnosed as costochondritis i will suggest you to have an ECG to exclude probable heart diseases as you have the risk factors like high triglyceride level.

Thank you.
