Hi Ms Open Read,
Welcome to HCM. I perceive that you are 52 years old by your age written in your query. I suggest a healthy diet and some form of exercise which will help reduce cholesterol levels. Brisk walking with few stretching exercises will suffice for now. If you get back with details of your weight, height and medical history if any, I can suggest a good diet plan and exercise for you.
