Hi Hate Meds,

 

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

 

A total cholesterol of 180 is typically very good.

 

All the best,
