    Take cholesterol lowering vitamins ( One A Day makes a good one.) Drink the cholesterol lowering yogurt shot and try to avoid anything high in trans fats.

    They say eating oatmeal will help lower cholesterol. Exercise can also help.

    There is a white vinegar/apple juice/grapejuice concoction that people swear by. I will look for the recipe for you and add if you are still taking comments.

    Well I don’t want you to do that thing all teens do and eat like nothing. So talk to your doctor. He will know exactly what to do. Oh! another thing, Go to your local fitness trainer and he or she can help you do good exercises for your age.

  • You can’t lower it just like that, mine was high and it’s taken ages to halve it, still to high.
    cut out all saturated fats. (read every food lable thoroughly).
    if you smoke, STOP!
    if you drink cut it to a bare minimum.
    garlic will help to reduce it more.
    But MOST important, get to the doctor and get on a course of
    something like Lipitor or some other statin, take it religiously and pray that it works.
    there are side effects, such as severe night cramps but, the side effect of doing nothing is an early date at the cemetry.
    Best of luck.

    Cholesterol comes from animal fat, like cheese, eggs, ice cream, and meat.
