LDL goal : Hi. No change in diet will get your LDL to goal. Your LDL is very influenced by your genetics, and minimally influenced by your diet. I would at least make sure you're not hypothyroid. Treatment with a statin is lifelong, and most people aren't that into preventive medicine. Lowering your LDL with a stain would lower your long term risk. Period. What is your family history of cardiac events?
