For the high triglycerides ---- they put me on Lopid (2 pills a day) - but I don't always take them religiously...

What I did do...
Quit eating fried foods (only have fried food about once every two or three months); don't eat white bread - only wheat; don't eat a lot of white rice; increase vegetable consumption...

That combo above got mine down to the normal level or only a few points from it intermittantly.
