High triglycerides with low LDL
My brother is 34 years old and just got his blood test results. His total cholesterol is okay with a HDL of 46 and a LDL of 40. But his triglycerides is 185, which is consider higher than the normal. Since usually high triglycerides come together with high cholesterol, what would be the cause of this kind of higher triglycerides with a considerably low in LDL?
