lokotriene  Not sure which UW questions you're referring to, but I found a couple that agree/support Fibrates for lowering isolated triglyceride elevation incase anyone wants to reference them for clarity. #11844 & #166 +  
username  Talking about in situations where the patient has cardiovascular event, serum lipid values show OKAY cholesterol levels but increased triglycerides. Q will ask what to add to patient's regiment. In this case, if answer choice throws you fibrates, you'll want to bite, but if patient has cardiovascular disease, you're going to want to go with statins +1

According to UpToDate:

At levels below 886 mg/dL (10.0 mmol/L), the risk of pancreatitis appears to be quite small [76-78]; however, it is reasonable to consider drug therapy at levels of 500 mg/dL (5.6 mmol/L) or above in patients with a prior episode of pancreatitis.

Bonus: They say fenofibrate>gemfibrozil always.
