3. I'm 34 and have also struggled with it.....
I had high cholesterol when I was a teenager, but due to some unrelated medication I was taking at the time. It had always been on the high side but it is genetic in my family. When I was about 32 or 33 my doctor decided that even though I was a little overweight that the levels my cholesterol were at, even with diet and excercise, would likely only drop 10-15% on their own. So he prescribed pravachal, which is a statin. At the same time I also started dieting and working out and my cholesterol has been peachy keen for the past year and a half due to a combination of the medication and the weight loss and better diet.
