how do they measure cholesterol anyways?
Total blood cholesterol level less than 200 mg/dL (5.13 mmol/l) is certainly very good. But you should know LDL cholesterol level and HDL cholesterol level separately.
LDL cholesterol level less than 129 mg/dL ( 3.31 mmol/l) is good. Below 100 mg/dL (2.56 mmol/l) is considered even better.
But a HDL cholesterol level of 39 mg/dL (1.00 mmol/l) is low and places you at risk of coronary heart disease. You should aim to increase your hdl cholesterol level to 40 mg/dL (1.03 mmol/l) or higher. For an even better protective result, some sources suggest the hdl cholesterol level should be 60mg/dL (1.56 mmol/l) or a little higher.
If your HDL cholesterol level satisfies the above count than it’s really good.
