51 Year Old Female, Cholesterol Is 204, Hdl Is 67, Ldl Is 123 And Triglycerine Is 71, Is This A Good Health

Answer

Hi cholesterol:

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

Your numbers are looking fairly good. I know you total cholesterol is a little above the 200 mark and you LDL is in the high range. Here is a link that may help you in that area: Your Checklist to Lower Cholesterol

Take care,
