Top 10 Questions About High Cholesterol, Answered

September 30, 2018

From the Everyday Health website

A simple blood test at a routine medical visit can tell whether you — like 32 percent of Americans — have high cholesterol.

You may be diagnosed with borderline-high or high cholesterol if your blood test results show:

Total cholesterol higher than 200 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL)

LDL (“bad”) cholesterol higher than 100 mg/dL

Triglycerides levels over 150 mg/dL

HDL (“good”) cholesterol less than 60 mg/dL

But what do these numbers really mean for your health?
