Lower Cholesterol or Raise It?

In and effort to lower cholesterol many people are focused on and concerned about what the total number is. If total cholesterol is under 200 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL) they feel pretty good about their heart health and rightfully so. But if your own total cholesterol number is above the golden benchmark of 200, then there is more than one approach to lower cholesterol.

There are two numbers which you should be concerned about in the battle against high cholesterol. The LDL cholesterol is the Low Density Lipoprotein and the kind of artery clogging substance you want to get rid of; it’s the so called “bad” cholesterol. LDL cholesterol should be under 100 mg/dL. The other number is the HDL cholesterol, or High Density Lipoprotein. This is the good cholesterol and works to rid the body of excess LDL cholesterol.

There is great concern among researchers recently at Johns Hopkins Hospital. The cardiologists there have determined that by raising the HDL cholesterol by even a single milligram per deciliter, the rate of heart attack is reduced by about 3 percent. However, there are still currently 54 million Americans in need of higher HDL cholesterol numbers. HDL readings should ideally be above 40 mg/dL for men and 50 mg/dL for women.

The Johns Hopkins researchers found that diet and exercise had an even greater impact on raising HDL cholesterol than medication. A diet containing specific nutrients, losing weight, reducing the intake of alcohol, and giving up smoking raised HDL cholesterol an average of 4 mg/dL.
