My LDL is 144 - lowest has been 125 in recent years. Total cholesterol is 240 and Hdl is 75. I am post menopausal. I had a repair of my mitral valve 1 1/2 years ago. I do not have heart disease and my angiogram showed no blockage. I was told I could try a statin. Instead I am increasing exercise since gym is closed during pandemic and I am discontinuing cheese and yogurt. I will also begin omega 3 . Any other ideas?
