I got a cholesterol test done and my total cholesterol is 211 and LDL is 133. Is this normal?

2 Doctors Answered
Normal cholestrol is around 200 and LDL is considered normal upto 100 .LDL between 100-130 is optimal and we recommend diet for them. You have both high cholestrol and LDL. The cause for this has to be known. Also you will need diet changes (low fat diet), excercise and also possible medication for helping contol your cholestrol. As you might know high cholestrol is risk for other problems related to heart and liver. Medication would be a good recommendation. Before starting the medication liver function test has to be done. Hope this is helpful.

Avoid oily and junk food, daily morning walk for 30 minutes. Drink amla and aloevera juice 1spoon each with water, and it will be alright completely after one month.
