What is good to lower cholesterol?

Decrease fat in diet: Increase the amount of fruits, vegetables, fiber in your diet. Increase your exercise and stay away from fatty foods-sorry that includes barbecue. Have your cholesterol measured by your physician and then you can tell you if your dietary changes have worked. If not then other considerations such as medication can be suggested.
