Is 119 cholesterol level too low?

I’m on Mevacor and it has brought my cholesterol down to 119. Is there a problem when the cholesterol level is this low?

  • If you mean total cholesterol the normal limits are between 100-199 Mg’s.

    If you mean HDL (healthy or good cholesterol) any number above 59 Mg’s is considered normal.

    If you mean LDL (Bad cholesterol) normal limits are 0-99 Mg’s.

    You seem fine but any questions related to this in the future should be directed to your health care professional

    Absolutely.

    I believe anything under 200 is dangerously low. You body needs cholesterol for many many reasons. Don’t believe the cholesterol myth.

    Mine is 329 and I am pleased with it.
