Cholesterol problem

I am 49 years old and have my cholesterol levels tested regularly.  I have had high cholesterol for at least 20 years and have taken most every cholesterol lowering drug on the market.  Each of them resulted in some negative health effect that caused my doctor to take me off them. (negative effect as measured by the liver tests)  I am on a low fat diet, I exercise, and my latest cholesterol test results showed: total level of 318, triglyc.- 461, and my HDL is 'low'.  I don't know what more to do.  My doctor says there are no more drugs for me to take - what can I do?
