Agree w/ Dr Nathanie: Your total cholesterol and LDL are high. As Dr. Nathaniel wrote, the initial step is ALWAYS an appropriate low fat diet. Sometimes it is possible to get the cholesterol and LDL levels to normal with a good diet and exercise. Medications and their known side effects could be avoided.
