High Cholesterol Board Index

Karefree the biggest concern I would have with your numbers is that your high trigs with your low HDL may be a risk factor in itself. In my particular situation my trigs were only slightly elevated 183 and my HDL was 32. My total cholesterol was below 200. I was 41 at the time and thought I was in excellent health.
As far as carbs go if you can stick to the complex carbs and stay away from the simple sugars you might see a reduction in your trigs. Also there is medication available for reducing your trigs. I would try diet, exercise and supplements first though.
I would also look at other risk factors. Do you have family history? Are you diabetice or have high blood pressure? Do you smoke? You have already mentioned that you are overweight. You need to take all of those things into account along with the lipid levels.
