Brief Answer:
Total cholesterol of 187 is normal

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to Ask A Doctor service.

Total cholesterol of 187 is normal.
Currently medicines are not needed. A healthy lifestyle including regular exercise and low fat diet is sufficient to lower cholesterol. You can reduce the quantity of food items that are fatty like ice-cream, sweets, milk shakes, cakes, pastries, cookies.

You can re-check the lipid profile (cholesterol levels and its details) in 4-6 months time.

Hope this helps. Let me know if I can assist you further.
