HIGH CHOLESTROL

DEAR SIR

I HAVE HAD A BYPASS OPERATION LAST YEAR AND SINCE THEN I HAVE BEEN TAKING DIET VERY LOW IN CHOLESTROL BUT EVERTY TIME WHEN I GO FOR CHECKUP MY CHOLESTROL IS always ABOVE 250.
NOW THE QUESTION I WANT TO ASK IS THAT I HAVE NO DIABETES AND SINCE MY OPERATION I HAVE BEEN VERY CAREFULL IN TAKING FOOD LOW IN CHOLESTROL, BUT STILL MY CHOLESTROL LEVEL IS HIGH.
THEREFORE I WOULD LIKE TO SEEK YOUR ADVICE IN THIS REGARD THAT WHAT SHOULD I DO TO CONTROL IT AND WHAT TYPE OF DIET SHOULD I TAKE.

It is important to aggressively control your cholesterol and you should determine what your LDL( low density cholesterol), HDL (high density cholesterol) and triglyceride levels are.  

You need to have your LDL below 100 and you will likely require medication.

Has anybody been tested for Familiar Hypocholesteromia. You can take a diet as much as you want but the levels will never drop below the acceptable rates if you have FH.
My total chol. was above 13, LDL has been 10,65 and HDL was below 1. Now taking Lipitor (80 mg a day) for about a year. Have not experienced any side effects and chol. levels have dropped drastically ! Lipitor has been replaced by my doctor by Tahor. (will start with Tahor next week)
I am wondering if anyone can tell me why Tahor is much cheaper than Lipitor, since they are both produced by Parke-Davis.
