Does my high triglyceride level put me at risk of a cardiac arrest?

My triglyceride levels have come higher than 200 in my recent blood test report. Does this put me at a high risk of cardiac arrest?

High triglycerides are a risk factor for coronary artery disease and may also indicate subclinical diabetes. See your doctor to assess your risk of coronary artery disease and therapy.
It doesn’t put you at increased risk of cardiac arrest, however, high triglyceride-like other risk factors such as obesity and diabetes and high blood pressure increase your risk of developing coronary artery disease.
