    Hi Rameela,


    Here are the recommendations of the American Heart Association:

    Total cholesterol less than 200
    HDL cholesterol at least > 40, ideally > 60
    LDL cholesterol at least less than 130, ideally less than 100
    Triglycerides less than 150


    I recommend discussing your elevated total cholesterol with your physician to determine an appropriate treatment plan.


    All the best,

    Lisa Nelson RD
