Thank you for your query.

I can understand your convern. I will appreciate if you share the figures so that we can guide you further.

To fix the abnormal triglyceride levels one has to work at two fronts:
1. Having healthy food.
2. Regular exercise.
One needs to change the food habits to ensure:
1. Intake of vegetables.
2. Reduce intake of saturated fats, mainly of animal origin.
3. Reduction in intake of red meat.
These are just broad guidelines to help you going. It shall take time to act.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction. Please feel free to revert back for any clarifications or if you would like to share more facts.

Wishing you all the best.
