In brief: Diet's only 1 factor

This is between your mother and her personal physician.
Hypercholesterolemia is largely about heredity. Managing it needs to include a focus on physical fitness. How much of a role diet and medication will take are questions to be addressed with respect to her long-term care -- and this will include her own preferences. How important are fat-fried foods to her?
