High Cholesterol

Hi all first time i have been on this site i have Hashimotos,Fibromialgia,Cervical spondyilits,Osteoatrhitis. I have had high cholesterol for a long time 7.5 was found when i was diagnosed with Hashimotos last year was offered statins by my GP said no as they would make fibro worse and wanted to see if medication for Hashis would take it down i have changed my diet but it is still at 7.5 received a letter from docters with a photocopied diet sheet and have another blood test in a month but i have seen endo who says that if it was still high had to go see a lipids docter because Dad died of heart attack and mum has angina. I have looked up Familial Hypercholesterolaemia was on blood test results and Tendon Xanthoma i have terrible trouble with my feet and someone has suggested it could be because i am low in B12.
