Normal Range Values- Cholesterol (Lipid Profile)

What are the normal values for cholesterol in our body? What are acceptable levels of HDL and LDL in our body? When shall the alarm bells begin to ring on seeing the lipid profile test reports? All these answers can be answered by looking at your cholesterol test reports and comparing this with the normal values.

These normal values are provided in the table below:

Lipid Profile Tests
Total Cholesterol 150-200 MG/DL
Triglycerides 40-140 MG/DL
HDL Cholesterol Direct 35-170 MG/DL
LDL Cholesterol Direct 65-170 MG/DL
Total Cholesterol/HDL Ratio 0-4.5
LDL/HDL Cholesterol Ratio 0-3.55

We would suggest people not to draw their own conclusions after matching the reported values of these parameters with the normal values given in the table above. Do seek doctoral advice on your lipid profile test report.
