I hope you get the triglycerides down soon. Become an avid label reader. I did and was amazed what is in some of the things we are eating. There is hidden sugar and salt in most everything. That will help you choose the good foods. Also, cooking from "scratch" helps a lot. The pre-packaged foods and fast foods are soooo bad for you, but you probably already know this! Just trying to help!
My triglycerides are down to 130 from 170 but that even took me a long time. I would say about a year. I am almost got all my Cholesterol stuff down to where is belongs. That part does make me happy.
