I need more info: In young patients like this I've sometimes had remarkably good results with diet, exercise and weight loss. Before I can give an informed opinion I'd like to know some more information: family medical history of lipid disorders, heart disease, diabetes, liver disease, obesity, and personal details including illnesses, medications, liver enzymes, BMI. Maybe you would like a video consult
