Your cholesterol and LDL are high and need treatment. While diet is always the first step, you may need medications depending on other risk factors such as family history, hypertension etc. Rely on your doctor to get the best advice for you. The earlier you start preventive measures, the better. Get medical help.

Use the diet called DASH, or rice-fruit diet or any other low fat diet. Look at Seattle Sutton’s web site.
