Brief Answer:
possible. suggestions.

Detailed Answer:
Its possible.
There are lipid profile deragements that can affect individual components.
You will need sugar control with tablets like metformin.
Triglyceides will need finofibrate.
If you cant tolerate it, atorvastatin may be used , but finofibrate is a better choice.
I have tried to make it as simple as possible.
Best of luck,
Dr Mittal
