Depends: Depends on your age, other risk factors, and severity of cholesterol elevation. The first step is healthy life style: fruits and vegetables and daily exercise avoiding animal fats in particular and large amount of any fat in general. Get to and maintain ideal body weight if possible. If that fails and your risks are high, medication may be indicated.

Many ways.: There are many wonderful treatments for high cholesterol ranging from lifestyle intervention to nutritional supplements to medications. Combining therapies can have a synergistic effect. Your primary care doctor or lipidologist should be able to help you get started in the right direction.
