My husband is having high cholesterol , Total value is 247. Please advice what can be done to bring this level down. He is taking less oily and less spicy diet already. We are worried if he has to start the tablet to lower the level and continue it forever.

Hello... Total cholesterol should be below 200 ... Hyperlipidemia is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease....Have to take fruits and vegetables, grains, beans, nuts, and seeds,Using olive oil as the principal fat, replacing other fats and oils, saturated fat is not good for health...Limiting usage of processed foods He needs to take in fewer calories than you burn. So that unburned calorie dont get stored as fat, lipid lowering drugs like statin helps in lowering lipid...take him to general physician with report.
