Is 157 High For Cholesterol


Hi Snugz,

No, 157 is a good total cholesterol reading.

Here's the goal for your cholesterol numbers:

Total cholesterol - less than 200 mg/dL

LDL cholesterol - less than 130 mg/dL

Triglycerides - less than 200 mg/dL

HDL cholesterol - greater than 60 mg/dL

Your total cholesterol is great!

All the best,
