Triglycerides are a different kind of "fat" from cholesterol, and it depends on how high your triglycerides are as to what you need to do.
Very high triglycerides increase your risk of not only heart
disease, but pancreatitis
. Watching your fats, adding omege 3 oils, either as fish oil
, can help. There are prescription medications also that can help. Discuss with your doctor how high.
