Question: 
Hello,I’m  going to be 60 soon.  I’m not overweight and I exercise a little.  I don’t have heart attack issues in my family.  My cholesterol was tested and the triglycerides were 78, the hdl was 76, but the ldl was 158!  Two years ago my ldl was 130.  I am a vegetarian, and I guess I have to give up all ice cream and candy since I already eat pretty lowfat.  The dr. said I don’t have to be on meds since my hdl is high.  Do you agree?  Any advice?

I agree with your doctor. My advice: a healthy diet, maybe exercise a little more:
