Saturated fats: Reducing the intake of saturated fats, and reducing caloric intake in general may help. If that does not reduce cholesterol levels to a healthy level, you should consult your doctor for medication/drugs.

Reduction : Reduce intake of saturated fats and cholesterol. Avoid coconut oil, milk as they contain lauric acid which can raise cholesterol. Increase fiber, and consider plant "cholesterol" products such as benecol that can lower cholesterol . If no improvement see a doctor.
