In brief: Fix causes,diet,meds
The first step is to determine why the LDL cholesterol is elevated.
Several inherited and acquired medical conditions will affect LDL levels. Second, if related conditions are identified i would treat those while also starting diet, exercise and lifestyle modifications. Third, medications can be used as needed to further lower LDL to reach levels appropriate for an individuals cardiovascular risk.
