My cholesterol level is 259 and the triglyceride level is 1,756 which very high. Kindly suggest me a remedy to lower my triglycerides levels.

The first thing to do in order to lower your triglycerides is to start exercising. Begin with determining if you are overweight. If you are, that will give you a very obvious target to lose weight. Once you reach your optimum weight, you would need to re-check your triglyceride levels. They will have reduced somewhat, but you would still have to consistently keep working at it if you want to bring the number under control. It is imperative that you exercise for at least 30 minutes every day. If you cannot do anything too strong, then you can simple climb stairs. This is the best kind of exercise to lose cholesterol and triglycerides. If you can manage 20 flights of steps a day, you can be assured that you will have a healthy heart for life. But begin with doing as much as you can and work your way up to it gradually.

It need not be pointed out that you would have to cut out all kinds of fried and fatty foods from your diet. It is also advisable to eliminate red meat, which is very high in triglycerides. You must also avoid eating egg yolks and whole milk and milk products such as cheese and ice creams. This will help you considerably.
