Hello I am a male 51 years of age

Patient: Hello I am a male 51 years of age. I have had high cholesterol levels for the past 10 years mostly due to heredity. Total was always around 250 with LDL around 175 and HDL around 60. Not wanting to take Crestor anymore I recently switched to using Lemongrass oil drops in water everyday and rubbing my liver and feet with Helyscium oil. I have been doing this for two months. I went to the doctor yesterday because I have a nagging cold for about 9 days. He thinks I have a virus. Did a blood test and all is normal except my Cholesterol is 139 total with LDL at 105 and HDL at 14! What could be causing this?

Symptoms: Common cold symptoms, very low cholesterol

Doctor:
