Exercise and eating right ought to be the first thing you try. Then there are supplements like Lecithin at the health food store. And there are lots of drugs you can take.

Eat oatmeal
lose weight
cut out red meats
eat more veggies

eat Garlic!

Eat oatmeal and lots of fiber. Lay off white foods, don't eat junk food or fried foods and exercise every single day. If you don't want to do any other exercise, get yourself out walking everyday! Stick with lots of fruit and vegetables..........and read labels checking for the amount of choleserol in the food item you are buying.

If you have already suffered a heart attack, then following a low-saturated-fat diet will help to lower the "bad cholestrol" and raise your HDL.

Similarly, if you smoke, have high blood pressure, are obese, have Type 2 diabetes, or have a family history of heart disease, following the low-fat, lower-cholesterol diet will help improve your health, too.

eat cherrios

change your diet to low fat low cholesterol
www.webmd.com will help you
and if that doesn't work there is medication to help lower it
sometimes even changing your diet may not help if it is genetic
do you have a family history of heart disease?

Eat healthy, get exercise, avoid alcohol.

Lot's of cholesterol meds out there, talk to you Doctor about the best one for you. They may want to run a lipid panel blood test to determing your total cholesterol which include LDL, HDL and triglyceride counts.

Good luck!

Exercise and eat better. You can take pills but its not always necessary

Watch what you eat and exercise.

Get plenty of exercise and eat healthy. Whole grains are good and stay away from high sugar and cholesterol levels in food. A girl with a cholesterol level of 280 ran every day and such. You can also take medication. I would recommend eating Quaker oatmeal.

eat a healthy, balanced diet, and exercise

Eat flaxseeds-- you only need 1-2 tablesspoons a day for your daily intake, it is cheap, healthy and you harldy notice it in your foods. Put in on cereals, yogurt, i even put in on spaghetti and salads...

Flaxseed Provides Comparable Cholesterol-Lowering Benefits to Statin Drugs

In a study involving 40 patients with high cholesterol (greater than 240 mg/dL), daily consumption of 20 grams of ground flaxseed was compared to taking a statin drug. After 60 days, significant reductions were seen in total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, triglycerides and the ratio of total to HDL cholesterol-in both groups. Those receiving flaxseed did just as well as those given statin drugs!

Body mass index, total cholesterol, HDL-cholesterol, LDL-cholesterol, triglycerides, and the ratio of total cholesterol/HDL-cholesterol were measured at the beginning of the study and after 60 days.

In those eating flaxseed, significant reductions were seen in total cholesterol (-17.2%), LDL-cholesterol (-3.9%), triglycerides (-36.3%) and the ratio of total cholesterol/HDL-cholesterol (-33.5%) were observed in the diet+flax group, compared to baseline. Similar reductions were seen in those taking the statin. Benefits did not significantly differ between the two groups.

Flax seed also has tons over other benefits! Do an online search to find out more... :)

A high fiber diet works. Flax seed, oatmeal, Oat Bran, whole grain just about anything, but it does have to be whole grain. Fish oil, actual fish, like salmon. Exercise, low fat and low cholesterol foods. Fruits and veggies. Leave off red meats, sea food, and fried foods. Eat eggs in moderation. Eat only olive oil for oils, and use extra virgin. Garlic, Lecithin. All of that can work to keep you off meds, but if it isn't enough, go get meds.
