In brief: Need to know more

As triglyceride (tg) levels increase the number of LDL particles (ldl-p) is characteristically high.
When ldl-p is high cardiovascular risk is elevated regardless of of ldl-c levels. To better assess your lipoprotein status i recommend checking lipoprotein particle numbers (ldl-p and hdl-p).

In brief: Hyperlipidemia

Well! the risks of having stroke or coronary artery disease with high serum lipid values is high but there is no study that documents the exact numbers and the probability associated with it.
Suggest diet and exercise and medications (statins etc.). All these significantly reduce the efforts.
