My Cholesterol Is 234, Triglicerides At 94, Hdl 67 And Ldl 148 - What Does All That Mean?

my cholesterol is 234, Triglycerides 93, HDL 67 LDL 148 what does that mean?

Answer

Hi Rae,

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

You'd benefit from lowering your LDL level. Here's an article you may want to review - http://www.healthcentral.com/cholesterol/c/42538/70316/4-cholesterol.
