Low carb or Mediterranean would fit in there. To lower cholesterol you also may want to look into exercise.

Quit smoking if you do, smoking raises your ldl and lowers your hdl. And regular physical activity, even 30 mins twice a day. Good luck, I'm in the same boat so lifestyle factors are under my control, the rest I'm powerless over, it is what it is.

I should add, my Dr. didn't specify low carb, but did say to give up cheese and dairy (a staple in my diet). And to eat less meat.

I lowered my cholesterol by drinking daily heaped teaspoons of orange flavor fibre drink in water 10 years ago. Doing this bulks you up so that all the pockets in your bowel get scraped, lowering cholesterol. I continue to do this and still have normal levels. Worked for me. Hope it does for you too.
