In brief: Lose weight, diet

Triglycerides are dependent on genetic predisposition, but also affected by excess weight, carbohydrate intake, alcohol, medications, & metabolic disorders like diabetes & low thyroid.
Having your doctor screen for these conditions, losing weight, cutting carbs & failing that, consideration for judicious use of appropriate medications under care of your doctor will help mitigate high triglycerides.

In brief: Low carb diet

Eat only meat or fish or cheese or eggs or poultry and low starch veggies, drink only water. In other words avoid all carbs, carbs will only briefly raise your sugar levels and then you will get hungry again.
The fats in the meat or fish or cheese or eggs or poultry will act like a "log on your metabolic fire" to keep your blood sugar stable for hours . Healthy blood sugar 90-99.
