Diet/Meds: A good bit of cholesterol is related to genetics.High total cholesterol does not mean much without looking at HDL,LDL,VLDL Ratios.Exercise ,(decrease poly saturated and Hydrogenated fats) and (increasing mono saturated and polyunsaturated fats).Do those regardless but may also need meds.
