Ra’, the best person to ask about a low-cholesterol diet is DietDoc. She is an expert in her field and will be able to give you all the information you need. If your cholesterol doesn’t come down to acceptable levels within 3-6 months, you will have to consider taking cholesterol-lowering drugs. Good luck.
