1) You have not mentioned the complete cholesterol report. It is not just about LDL being high, to suggest treatment we need to know how high it is and other types of cholesterol as well. So please consult with the full report to know the exact treatment you may require. 2) For diet advice, please take a detailed consult with a dietitian for a 'healthy heart diet' 3) lifestyle measures are daily 40 mins of brisk walking, maintaining optimum weight for height, avoiding smoking and alcohol and ensuring that your BP is within normal limits. 4) Your TSH is high and you require thyroxine for this, this deranged thyroid level may also be leading to your deranged cholesterol levels. So consult an endocrinologist for thyroid evaluation and treatment. Repeat your lipid profile after 6 weeks of lifestyle changes and thyroid medicine, if they are still high please consult a cardiologist for starting low dose statins. 'healthy heart diet

Cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like substance that occurs naturally in all parts of the body. Your body needs some cholesterol to work properly. But if you have too much in your blood, it can combine with other substances in the blood and stick to the walls of your arteries. This is called plaque. Plaque can narrow your arteries or even block them. High levels of cholesterol in the blood can increase your risk of heart disease. Your cholesterol levels tend to rise as you get older. There are usually no signs or symptoms that you have high blood cholesterol, but it can be detected with a blood test. You are likely to have high cholesterol if members of your family have it, if you are overweight or if you eat a lot of fatty foods. You can lower your cholesterol by exercising more and eating more fruits and vegetables. You also may need to take medicine to lower your cholesterol. High LDL high cholesterol put you on a higher risk of atherosclerotic diseases and heart attacks especially if you have other is factors including hypertension diabetes or a history of smoking so I would advise you to continue / start taking statins which are cholesterol medications the dose of which depends upon your cholesterol levels also you need to start changing your dietary habits and include a regular physical exercise at least 45 minutes a day 5 days a week into your schedule nonetheless you have to stop taking fatty and junk food good luck
