What range is good cholesterol?

I just donated blood for the first time and my total cholesterol was 195. I am only 30. Is this good or bad??

    there are 3 numbers to concentrate on when measuring cholesterol.

    You need to look at the total overal number, th HDL (good cholesterol) number and the LDL (bad cholesterol number).

    Visit http://www.realhomeremedies.com and click on the high cholesterol link on the left. You’ll find a chart that tells you what numbers you want and what numbers are bad.

    Less than 200 is desirable.

    Should be less than 180, but yours is pretty good!
