Knowing the risks, what are the correct cholesterol guidelines? With a total cholesterol level of less than , you have a low risk of having a heart attack unless you have other risk factors.
Almost half of adult Americans fall in this category. Of the others, almost one third of Americans fall within the borderline high risk category and the rest are in the high risk category. There are two different types of cholesterol — one bad and one good.
Low-density lipoprotein LDL is the one that, if increased, will increase your chances of having a heart attack. If your LDL is high, the doctor may ask you to go on a diet that is low in saturated fats and cholesterol as well as start an exercise program. High-density lipoprotein HDL is the good cholesterol. HDL levels of less than 40 puts you at risk for heart disease.
Things like smoking, being overweight, and lack of exercise can lower your HDL levels. Your doctor should also mention your triglyceride level. Some people who have high triglycerides have underlying problems such as disease or genetic disorders and may be required to change their lifestyles in order to lower their level.
Even if your total cholesterol is in the borderline high risk category, you may not be at a higher risk for a heart attack. Certain circumstances, such as women going through menopause, can cause a high total level, but a desirable LDL level. Why do our products work to help you lose weight? They are high in protein.
