Hello. I've recently had blood donations and they informed me that my cholesterol is 152. I'm an active swimmer for my high school team. I also swim during the summer to stay in shape, but i was wondering that i'm only 17 years of age and my cholesterol is that high of a number, is that a healthy area?
Here are the recommendations of the American Heart Association recommends total cholesterol be less than 200. A level of 152 mg/dl is good!
All the best,
