In brief: Triglycerides can be
Elevated by medications or especially by high-glycemic-index carbohydrates (high-fructose corn syrup is major offender).
Fast foods like french fries are good example. Limit fried foods, fast foods, high starch foods (potatoes, white bread, rice, pasta). Some people have a genetic disposition to high tg's but your situation may be primarily dietary.
