First off I would get another test done. You'd be surprised at how much your cholesterol can vary day-to-day.
Second, check your thyroid. You might need iodine supplementation
Make sure you are getting enough Vitamin D, are you supplementing? You should.
Also check your gut health.
How about your antioxidant intake? With elevated cholesterol this is really important. Please make sure you are getting enough, berries, chocolate, coffee, and lots of others.. Make sure to vary your antioxidants.
What animals are you eating? (grass fed or grain fed?) Same with eggs... this is critical I wouldn't eat crap meat if you want good numbers.
How much slow movement are you doing? I would make sure at least 30 minutes of slow movement a day. I also recommend cutting the whey protein. If you aren't getting enough protein from real foods then maybe you dont need as much as you think.
Listen to some pod casts by Chris Kresser (he was recently in the paleo summit)_ talking about cholesterol. It is really great. Even on a paleo diet there is more that you may need to do personally to be healthy.
Your doctor is recommending a diet that can oxidize all that cholesterol, which is the real problem with cholesterol..so I wouldn't agree with that.
