How does diabetes (type 2), pancreatitus, and high tryglycerides tie together?

I have type 2 diabetes, and severely high tryglycerides, and chronic pancreatitus. I have already had to have a portion of my pancreas removed. I just want to know how it all ties together, and what exactly do tryglycerides do?

    They're all tied by over consuming carbohydrates which turn to tryglycerides which clogs up your cells and increases your insulin resistance which then overworks your pancreas as well as starving it from vital nutrients.

    Once you get on a healthy natural foods based low carb, low glycemic index diet, rich in fruits and vegetables and exercise daily, things should level out. I've been on this diet for nearly a year and no longer require any medication for my diabetes. More here:
