There are some things that you can do with your diet too. A low carb, high protein diet has been shown to reduce cholesterol. You could try something like the super cutter diet. There are also some compounds like UDCA that work as well.

Good info Headdoc! Oatmeal, yougurt and naturally fermented red wine are also helpful lowering cholesterol. Niacin also has been used with success, flush free (inositol hexanicotinate). High alcohol intake is bad though for blood lipids.

liftsiron is a fictional character and should be taken as such.

I'm taking 1500 mg of no-flush Niacin (Inositol Hexaniacinate) and 20mg of policosanol per day. This has brought down my cholesterol very well. Also cardio will help...

if you are really worried Formastane will reduce your cholesterol but I do not reccomend using it for more than a couple of weeks and it will kill your LDL as well as your HDL

Phytosterols (plant steroids) are particularly effective at lowing cholesterol. Additionally, soluble fiber (psyllium husk) has also been shown to lower cholesterol. Combining both phytosterols and psyllium husk may lower LDL by 60 pts in 60 days.... without the side effects experienced with dangerous statin drugs.

Nice post. Statin drugs should be a last choice...if at all. the diet recommendations in this thread are all good. If you not doing low carb, I'd throw in some beans.

Also cardio will help...

Definitely, add cardiovascular training 3-5 times per/week; minimum of 30 minutes/session; and 65-85% of your maximum heart rate. Good luck!

All great info, also, I know a ton of people that have had great success with red yeast rice. Works like many of the scripts out there without the sides. ie.. mevacor

Heres some info

red yeast rice extract has a number of heart-healthy benefits: It seems to help reduce total cholesterol levels, lower levels of LDL ("bad") cholesterol, increase levels of HDL ("good") cholesterol, and lower levels of unhealthy fats called triglycerides. It appears to accomplish this by restricting the liver's production of cholesterol. The compound responsible for this effect--mevinolin--is chemically identical to the cholesterol-lowering compound lovastatin, which is sold as the prescription drug Mevacor. Hence the action by the FDA. Mevinolin is also similar to the active ingredients in other cholesterol medications such as Zocor (simvastatin) and Lipitor (atorvastatin). Unsaturated fatty acids in red yeast rice extract are also believed to be beneficial, possibly by lowering triglycerides.

By lowering cholesterol concentrations, red yeast rice extract may help to prevent heart disease and some of its complications. Individuals with moderately elevated cholesterol levels (200 to 239 mg/dL) may benefit from a dietary supplement such as red yeast rice extract. However, those with very high cholesterol levels (240 mg/dL or above) are at considerable risk for heart disease and should stick to prescription drugs with a proven ability to rapidly and effectively reduce cholesterol levels.

the only issue with red rice yesast is the possibility of liver enzyme increases.

Just to add a different point of view (which I happen to share ), maybe the high cholesterol isn't that big of a deal since a clear (causal) link between high cholesterol and cardiovasculair diseases has not been established:

No ofence bro, but we need some evidence-based medicine for such an important statement.
