    My HDL IS 131 and LDL IS 114. Is this considered good or bad?

    Hi J. Rockett,

     

    The normal range for LDL is 70-130 mg/dl.  Depending on your situation, your MD may want LDL to be less than 100 mg/dl. 

     

    HDL is beneficial to heart health, so usually high HDL levels (>60 mg/dl) are desirable and protect against heart disease.  However, not a lot of research has been completed on HDL levels greater than 100.  It's best to speak with your MD to evaluate your risk.

     

    All the best,
