In brief: Diet and meds

Triglycerides can be treated with lifestyle changes including, a low fat diet, regular exercise, and weight loss.
Depending on the level medication or over-the-counter supplements may be necessary. Otc meds such as omega 3 fish oil and Niacin can be helpful if lifestyle changes fail. Medications that target triglycerides are available as well.
