Newly revised guidelines from the American Heart Association have changed the cholesterol levels that are considered to be healthy. The guidelines look at three key components to blood cholesterol: the Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL), High Density Lipoprotein (HDL), and Total Cholesterol readings.
LDL cholesterol is the so-called bad cholesterol. It should ideally be kept below 100 mg/dL. HDL cholesterol is the good and should be raised to at least 40 mg/dL. Total cholesterol levels below 200 mg/dL are considered healthy. Equally as important to these single readings is the ratio between LDL and HDL. Even if LDL is in the healthy range, if HDL is too low then the ratio is will be off. If this is the case, steps need to be taken to adjust even single readings that are not within the ideal range.
