In brief: Lots of reasons
Genetics, a diet high in calories/fat, sedentary lifestyle, underactive thyroid, and diabetes are some.

In brief: Thyroid + gall bladd
Healthy gallbladder and liver uses cholesterol to make bile so normalizing them will normalize cholesterol.
Cholesterol is formed in liver under influence of thyroid. Cholesterol is needed to make hormones in body if hormones are unbalanced (high estrogen states) stresses thyroid which slows down, increasing cholesterol and if gallbladder does not work and thin bile liver backs up cholesterol.
