    Dude, it's very dangerous. Workout 5 times a week and cut fats, especially saturated. Lose weight. Lose weight. Lose weight.

    It is not the case that 2000 is some crazy dangerous number, it's just really high. Your doctor should have already put you on a statin and/or Tricor. I am not in favor of doing something just for the case of a blood test, but my physician suggested that avoiding carbs and fatty foods the day before my bloodwork would result in a more accurate reading.

    There's hope! Everyone in my family has high triglycerides, and I was running in the 300s to 500s for many years, I was taking Tricor and a statin for a long time. Fortunately, a lot of exercise and more careful good choices lowered my triglycerides so much that while I'm still taking a statin, I stopped taking Tricor a long time ago. My most recent bloodwork showed my lowest triglycerides ever, well within normal range.

    Triglycerides levels are driven by carbohydrates intake. And you should be tested for familial hypercholesteremia or hypertriglyceridemia.

    I started by joining a gym. That helped, but Iโ€™m also on Lipitor now.

      I agree now, it is probably a different problem. Go get checked

    See a doctor ASAP.

    Donโ€™t make sudden and drastic changes to diet or exercise either as these could be dangerous.

    You need to see a doc.. levels this high means you have a enzyme issue which diet and exercise can't help. Good luck.

    Diet and exercise is the solution but because your level is amazingly high, please take medicines as well. It is alarming

    Generally, without knowing your specific medical or fitness situation, Triglycerides can be reduced by taking a low(er) carb nutrition approach and introducing exercise. In my personal experience, attempting to establish both of these habits at once can be very difficult and youโ€™d probably give up after a few days. And, given the number, you might have a medical situation to discover and explore with your doctor. One thing to try - and something Iโ€™ve personally done to clean up my lifestyle - is to do a Whole30. Thereโ€™s a book, community, etc., but you can just go straight in and live the โ€œRulesโ€ for 30 days. I found this approach both achievable and effective.
