In brief: Many options

Hyperlipidemia (high cholesterol) is treated by daily exercise, a low saturated fat diet, and increased dietary fiber.
Other secondary treatments include over the counter Niacin and omega-3 fish oil. The Niacin and fish oil, however, should not be started without your doctor's consent as they both can interact with current medications you may be taking.

In brief: Diet and exercise

High cholesterol, depending on how high it is, can usually be treated with a low fat, low cholesterol diet and regular physical activity.
Avoiding fried, fatty foods, especially saturated fats, and focusing on polyunsaturated fats, fibers, and whole grains can help. Fish and fish oil can also dramatically improve some types of high cholesterol!
