Q: Need to raise HDL very quickly.

I am 35, in top physical shape, and have just found out my HDL is only 14 (yes, fourteen).   Heart disease is rampant in my family.  I am an amateur bodybuilder, and know my diet and lifestyle are not to blame.   My doctor wants to prescribe drugs to lower, but my liver might suffer.    How can I raise my HDL before I collapse from a massive MI?
