    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,
