In brief: Lower cholesterol
If diet and cholesterol do not work statins are recommended, but they have some toxicities and side effects.
Epa fish oils, including prescription vascepa, lower high triglycerides but also lower LDL cholesterol without the side effects but to a more limited degree.

In brief: MFO ; RYR
You can use good quality marine fish oil to lower triglycerides and red yeast rice to lower ldl.
Some folks need one or the other, some both. Nutrition accounts for 15 to 20 % of lab results, the rest is familial.
