Do people who take statins have to take them for life?

I was diagnosed with diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol 2010. So I started medication for all of those. I also started exercising regularly last year and decided to go vegetarian. Lost 71 pounds so far. My cholesterol numbers are very low, last time we checked in April. Hoping the hdl is higher now. No longer officially diabetic maybe, my medication was lowered a lot, the doc said I was pre diabetic. But, if my cholesterol numbers are in the double digits, do I still have to take the statins? My goal is to be healthy without medication, as much as possible.
