Hello,

I understand your concern and would that aerobics, a lot of physical activity and losing weight can help reduce naturally cholesterol levels. Some diet modifications (low sugar and fat intake can help too).

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Yes, a healthy diet and good physical activity will help you to maintain a healthy cholesterol profile.

It’s recommended for you to take high fibre diet and avoid all kind of junk and fried food with 40 min workout 5 days a week.
