Nothing to worry except try reducing his fat intake by restricting eating-out and avoiding all junk food. Doing this only should help his tryglyceride levels as well as vomitting. Have you got your and your wife's tryglyceride levels checked. If not, do that, to rule out any familial cause. Thanks.
