Hyperlipedemia: Your husband's lipid profile is abnormal. His total, good and bad cholestrol are abnormal along with high triglyceride and liver function. All of them can be cause of heart attack. Simply triglyceride can give pancreatitis. As a wife make sure for strict low chol. Diet & exercise daily. No alcohol or smoking. See your doctor for cholestrol medication and weight reduction. Strict discipline needed.

Eat healthier: Your husband has a very high triglyceride level likely due to consuming a lot of carbohydrates (breads, pastas, etc). His elevated cholesterol and liver enzymes suggest he may have fatty liver as well. He risks developing heart and liver disease. He needs to change his lifestyle and way of eating, lose weight if he needs to, eat less processed and refined foods, and do (more) cardio exercise.
