I have high colesterol for years but always resisted taking medication. My doctor said my diet is healthy, i dont smoke or drink much and i should exercise more to bring the bad levels down. I havnt succeeded. Im not a lover of exercise though i do walk a fair bit most days weather permitting. Im now 55 and concerned I am never going to get my levels down from 6.1 to a normal reading. I also have hypothydorism which is under control with medication. Would welcome anyone else that managed to get their levels down without taking statins. Thanks.
