This will depend upon the origin of your cholesterol problem. If it isn't HeFH or HoFH then diet and exercise can make a big difference. If you have inherited the HeFH or HoFH gene than you are genetically high and though those things will help, they won't be completely successful without the medication.

I have HeFH which means I inherited genetic high cholesterol from one parent (my mother). A qualified cardiologist can examine you, your lab work, etc. and diagnose if you have a genetic form or not.

There is very little awareness of HeFH or HoFH. You can learn more at www.thefhfoundation.org

Not gotten off but was able to not be put on them in the first place. From one test to the next I was able to lower number with a change in diet and exercise. There is a setting on the tracker for cholesterol and I made sure to stay close to the lower number daily. Also upped the fiber.
All the best to you!
