Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Dietary management to decrease the blood cholesterol levels is a good idea. You can manage by reducing the amount of saturated fats in your food and use good refined oils like olive oil or Saffola for cooking. Try having raw garlic daily- at least 1-2 buds.
