Q: 

what are normal cholesterol levels?

A: The most significant factor in determining your risk of heart and cardiovascular disease is cholesterol. The liver synthesizes cholesterol into a product that can be found in most of the cells of the body. Deposits of plaque from this fatty substance can be found in the walls of the arteries and develop into “hardening of the arteries” or arteriosclerosis. In order to know if you have normal cholesterol levels, you need to have a blood test or blood panel. Elevated cholesterol levels are also recognized in genetic diseases, liver and kidney disease, and hypothyroidism. High Density Lipoprotein (HDL), Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL) and Very...
Q: 

what are Healthy cholesterol levels?

A: Your total cholesterol should be below 200 mg/dL. LDL levels should be below 100-129 mg/dL. HDL goes the opposite, higher the better, it should be 60 mg/dL and above. And finally your triglycerides should be below 150 mg/dL. There are some gender/age specific levels and you should check with your doctor. A total cholesterol level of under 200 mg/dL is considered desirable. A level between 200 mg/dL and 239 mg/dL is considered to be borderline high risk. Over 240 mg/dL is considered high risk, with roughly twice the risk of coronary heart disease. Healthy cholesterol levels is HDL or High Density Lipoprotein. The normal values of this is 30-60 mg/dl, which an...


Q: 

what are normal Testosterone Levels in Males?

A: The normal testosterone levels in males varies depending upon the person’s natural hormone levels. Most physicians agree that the range of a normal level is 250 to 1,000 nanograms (ng) per deciliter (dL) of blood. For young males under the age of 30, the normal range is upwards of 600 ng/dL. normal testosterone levels in males naturally decreases as men age. Men in their 50s usually test in the mid-500 ng/dL. Each man’s production of the hormone is different, so ranges will vary depending upon the individual.. Testosterone is an androgen-type steroid hormone produced by males in the testes and by woman in the ovaries, and it is created from cholesterol. The pituitary...


Q: 

what are ''normal'' cholesterol blood (LDL, HDL, TG, VLDL, VHDL, AP) levels?

A: It seems like we need a cheat sheet for cholesterol blood numbers! LDL is Optimal at less than 100 mg/dL and near optimal or still considered ok at 100-129 mg/dL - LDL is better when it is lower. HDL normal is between 40 and 60. Below 40 is to low and above 60 is to high. TG is Triglycerides and they are normal below the 150 point. They also impact your LDL number so if your TG level is high your LDL may be also normal VLDL range is 5 and 40 mg/dL. This is a percentage of the triglycerides I''m not sure if the AP level you are looking for is Alkaline phosphatase or something else. Alkaline phosphatase normal...

Q: 

what does a cholesterol level of 5.5 mean?

A: "The amount of cholesterol present in the blood can range from 3.6 to 7.8 mmol/litre. A level above 6 mmol/litre is regarded as high, and is a risk factor for arterial disease. Government advice recommends a target cholesterol level of under 5, but on average men in England have a level of 5.5, and women a level of 5.6" you have an average cholesterol level but ideally it could be lower!! Its high....normal should be under 2. elevated triglycerides means you have lots of not unhealth food too. Unless its inherited, my advice is control your diet and do more regular exercise (exercise can bring up your good cholesterol too, HDL) and o for blood test 3 months...


Q: 

How serious are my cholesterol levels?

A: With you being young as you are, these right now probably wouldn''t cause problems, but only because your last years were fine & yes they have to come down lower for your health sake. Your doctor might put you on med, he might wait & try diet first. Each doctor is different. Ask the doctor, but I do not think BC pills will make CHO rise like that, yes diet would. CHO normally has to be under 200 & is preferred to be under 180 by new standards. The other numbers I know are high, but I can''t remember off the top of my head the exact high/normal numbers. I & my husband do these things, he still has to take med, I do not take med sothese things do work & none of these things...


Q: 

what are the cholesterol high and low percentages ie; less than 5% etc?

A: Not worked out on a percentage thing its done on a number scale. Just had mine done and apparently I''m doomed...its 7.2 and it should be less than 4.5......But hey.....ce la vie..... This depends on the number of risk factors you have. Risk factors includes: hypertension, family history, obesity, lack of excersise, smoking etc. less than 2 risk factors your desired LDL (bad cholesterol) is below 160 mg/dL (this is not total cholesterol). 2 or more factors its below 130 mg/dL. If diabetic or had any previous cardiac conditions LDL should be below 100 mg/dL. HDL (good cholesterol) is always desired to be high. Higher than 40 mg/dL is just fine. Do you mean the % in foods? Or
