I'd try a whole foods source of protein. More eggs for him or something like that. The processed nappy stuff in most protein drinks could easily lead to inflammation, and poor cholesterol ratios are simply indicators that cholesterol is being needed to control inflammation.
The increasing triglycerides would be my biggest concern. Are you together for all your meals? I know my husband had no idea how much sugar/grains I scarfed down when he was at work before I got my carb cravings under control. If I'm way off base, just ignore that.
I beg to differ. Tell that to the countless numbers of us whose health took a dramatic turn for the better simply because we increased our consumption of natural saturated fat. Even the simplest of effects, satiety, was enough to curb carb cravings for half the day, just by switching from skim to whole milk during breakfast, for me. That alone made a dramatic improvement in my health.
