Cholesterol Chart

  5. 5. Cholesterol can be either bad or good. LDL or low density lipoprotein is the bad cholesterol and the HDL or the high density lipoprotein is the good cholesterol. Both of these circulate in your body.
  6. 6. It is the LDL that you have to reduce and it is the HDL that you need to increase. You need to decrease LDL because it helps the cholesterol to reside in your arteries. You need to increase HDL because it is the one that delivers cholesterol to the liver to be eliminated.

  8. 8. And all that you have to do is to take a blood test and compare the results with the cholesterol chart.
  9. 9. Besides the HDL and LDL, triglycerides is also found in the chart. In simple words, triglycerides are referred to as fats. Fat is the what your body burns in order to give you energy. If fats are not used, they will be stored for use in the future.
  10. 10. Having too much of what the chart indicates for your LDL and Triglycerides means you could possibly experience health problems in the future. Most of the charts use the mg/dl (or milligram per deciliter) in measuring HDL, LDL, and triglycerides.
  11. 11. A chart would indicate that you have a normal level and thus possess a healthy body free from heart disease or that you are at high risk as follows:
  12. 12. < 35 40 – 35 > 40 High Density Cholesterol > 190 130 – 160 < 130 Low Density Cholesterol > 500 150 – 500 < 150 Triglycerides > 240 200 – 240 < 200 Total Cholesterol High Risk Borderline Desirable Blood Cholesterol Level
