Your Total and LDL are great. Your HDL is low but can be increased with exercise and Omega 3 fatty acids. You can lower your TGLs by avoiding empty carbs like sugars, breads and pasta. Also, if you drink, cut way back as that will increase TGLs. If that does not work there is a class of drugs called Fenofibrates that are very effective and have no side effects so you can ask your doctor about those. FYI, a TGL of 256 is really not all that high. There are many with levels in excess of 1,000 which is the real danger point.

Remember, always discuss exercise and supplements with yuor doctor before beginning.

Just wondering, if trigs are mainly caused by carbs and sugar, is it really necessary to have them low? My trigs are always high and the cardiologist knows I have a very sweet tooth and doesn't seem bothered.
I remember asking several times at rehab what the difference between LDL and trigs are. They simply said that trigs are instant energy, what is used first for exertion, and LDL are slower at producing energy and these go into reserve if not used. When I think about this, you would expect trigs to be much lower when someone has done a long exercise routine? if this is the energy used up first before starting to release the slower responding fat reserves.
