In brief: As long as needed

The treatment for high triglycerides (hypertriglyceridemia ) is based on the cause.
Is it genetic ( inherited)? In which case the treatment may be lifelong. Is it dietary, or lifestyle related? In which case if the causative factor can be improved or corrected then it resolves. Is it caused by another disease or perhaps a medication? If treated or removed then treatment may be completed.
