Hi,
Looking at your age and laboratory findings, I am of the opinion that this raised bilirubin could be secondary to a congenital hyperbilirubinemia disorder.
As you are not suffering from any causes of raised bilirubin, I think you should be probably screened for direct and indirect bilirubin and enzyme levels of glucoronyl transferase.
It could be Gilberts syndrome. It does not cause any complications and can present with asymptomatic hyperbilirubinemia.
For triglycerides, you can try medications, high fiber and low fat. diet.
Any further queries, happy to help again.
