My Ldl Test Came Back With The Number 141, Should I Be Worried

Hi Jeanne,

The American Heart Association recommends LDL cholesterol be at least less than 130, ideally less than 100 mg/dl.

The best way to know if LDL levels are a concern is with a comprehensive lipid panel to determine your particle sizes.
