You can reduce the amount of cholesterol in your blood by eating healthy foods low in saturated fat and cholesterol, losing weight (if you need to) and exercising. For some people, changing their diet isn't enough and medication is required. Taking part in a high cholesterol research study may provide a treatment option.
