In brief: Statins
The mainstay of therapy for those who need drug treatment is a statin (sold in the USA under the brand names: Crestor, Lipitor, (atorvastatin) Zocor, Pravachol, Leschol, and Mevacor).
Normalization of weight, control of diabetes, a balanced, low animal fat or vegetarian diet, avoidance of smoking, and regular exercise will all improve dyslipidemia as well.
