Hi. Good that you are working out and eating healthy. If you have normal levels of TG and HDL then do not worry you need not reduce them but strive to keep them there. Physical activity and healthy eating habits are an absolute necessity to control your cholestrol levels

you're doing well with exercise & diet-watch; but it depends on your lipids-report. Ideally TGL should better be under 180mgs/dl and HDL above 70mgs/dl. If you dont have other co-morbid conditions or contraindications for certain prescription medications, you would be advised pills like Fenofibrates (Fibrates). Better ask your physician for advice. Stay well!

My son has high triglycerides of 810. He is 6 ft 2 and 190 pounds he is 15 years old. I didn t think he ate real bad but he is inactive. His diet is limited with only a few fruits he ll eat a only broccoli and spinach for vegetables. He eats typically almost the same thing every day. Cereal, a turkey sandwich, pasta and chicken at night. His snacks include granola bar, yogurt, low fat cheese stick and sun flower seeds. He has cut out all ice cream and no cookies now for the past month. How long will it take for his levels to go down and how else can I help him?
