The doctor might prescribe some cholesterol lowering medications depending on various factors like age, cholesterol level, and presence of other diseases. Adopting a healthy lifestyle is the most important step to lower and maintain cholesterol levels. Stay active. Take up walking, running ,swimming, or cycling to help in keeping the cholesterol in check. If you have a sedentary job, make sure to move around and go for short walks atleast every 2 hours. Choose a healthy oil like olive oil or rice bran oil and make sure to use it in moderation. Cut down on deep fried, processed foods as well as sweets and packaged foods. Quit smoking.
