High Cholesterol Board Index

My total cholesterol is 232 My triglycerides are 88 hdl is 79 and ldl is 135. I'm not over weight, i exercise and I'm healty. I have no other medical problems. I'm 55 and for around 5yrs. now it's been going up and down, but not under 220. My father had heart desease and died of a heart attack at 65. Heart desease ran in my fathers family. My mom's is still alive and her cholesterol is good and shes over weight and never exercised and eats terrible. But her mom and aunts all died of strokes. My blood pressure is good. My doctor saids I should go on a cholesterol medicine. I don't know what to do. I really don't want to. Is it a risk if I don't. I had hepatitis when I was younger. Does that mean any thing with the liver? I need some good info. on this. Thanks.
