Cholesterol - A silent killer : The truth about your heart : Symptoms, Healthy Levels and Triglycerides of high blood cholesterol - 3
What are the symptoms of high blood cholesterol?
Generally high blood cholesterol itself does not cause any symptoms and that is why it is known as the “SILENT KILLER”.
How is blood cholesterol measured?
It is recommended that every adult should be screened for blood cholesterol. The cholesterol level in the blood is measured in a sample taken in the morning after a 12-hour fast.
It is the best to have a blood test called a “lipoprotein profile”. This test gives information about your:
1) Total blood cholesterol
2) LDL (Bad) cholesterol
3) HDL (Good) cholesterol
What are the healthy levels of cholesterol and triglycerides?
Desirable value: Less than 200 mg/dL. (Less than 5.2 mmol / L)
LDL (Bad) Cholesterol
Desirable value: Less than 130 mg / dL. (Less than 3.37 mmol / L)
HDL (Good) Cholesterol
Male: 40 – 50 mg / dL. (1.0 – 1.28 mmol / L)
Female: 50 – 60 mg / dL. (1.28 – 1.54 mmol / L)
Desirable value: Less than 150 mg / dL. (Less than 1.69 mmol / L)
It is important to know that there are two main methods of describing concentrations of cholesterol: By weight i.e. milligrams per deciliter (mg / dL) and by molecular count i.e. millimoles per liter (mmol / L). To understand and describe the test results you should remember the units used for the measurement of your cholesterol level.
