    Total cholesterol < 200,
    LDL < 130,
    HDL > 40.

    In teens we try to avoid medication or too much diet restriction as these may affect growth. Cholesterol is an important building block and ingredient for the nervous system, hormone production, and cell membrane function. Exercise is encouraged. Do discuss with your Dr regarding your child’s cholesterol results and treatment.
