Dear Cholesterol
High cholesterol levels are often hereditary and if you are already eating a low fat diet and you stop the medicine, your cholesterol level ( which is abnormally high already while you are now on medication ) will go up more. I think you should see a doctor at a state hospital where you will be able to get treatment and regular blood tests for an affordable amount. If you get a heart attack or stroke due to high cholesterol, you may end up disabled.
