A:   Welcome to Ask The Doctor.
I understand your concern. I am here to help you.

You have deranged lipid profile with such level of derangement, treatment with a group of drugs called as Statins is warranted.
Initially with such a high triglyceride levels we advise for dietary modification and exercise. Since you have been already doing that, with no improvement in your lipid profile, you would require medication.
The sperm problem and cholesterol issues are unrelated.
You should also get your blood sugar tested in case it has not been done yet.
I would advise you to:
1.Reduce your weight.
2.Avoid Fatty food in diet.
3.To consume potato, rice, oil, ghee, sweets, carbonated beverages in moderated amount only.
4. Avoid alcohol and smoking in case you do.
5. To take a combination of Rosuvastatin and Fenofibrate for 3 months.
Get your lipid profile repeated after 3 months and write back to me with reports.
This is my best opinion for you.

You should discuss my opinion with your doctor.
Stay healthy
