I can not comment on anyone's specific situation in an online public anonymous forum and would recommend you see a competent health professional for individual and personal health advice.

However, in general, there are many things that can contribute to high triglycerides including excess caloric intake, excess body weight, excess body fat, excess dietary fat, refined/processed sugars/sweeteners, refined/processed carbohydrates/grains and alcohol amongst them.

The studies that show carbohydrates raise TGs are not down on the diet I recommend or with the carbohydrates I recommend. When clients follow my recommendations, I see TGs drop 30% on average and as much as 50% or more, and this has been published many times in the scientific literature.

Lower HDL is not as relevant to someone following a healthy diet and lifestyle. Several of the longlived populations that have low rates of CVD, have HDLs in the 20's and 30's
