Doctor :   In General a low cholesterol levels may be associated with an increased risk of death in people with cancer. However, there is no evidence that a low cholesterol level causes cancer. Low cholesterol levels may also be associated with depression and anxiety
Doctor :   Also low cholesterol may reduce serotonin levels in the brain.The low cholesterol levels depends on the individual. A newborn has a low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol level of 30 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL) and develops normally at this level. People who eat low-fat, low-cholesterol diets may have an LDL cholesterol level between 40 and 50 mg/dL and a total cholesterol level of 100 mg/dL and they do just fine.In general total cholesterol level to be less than 200 mg/dL and LDL cholesterol level to be below 100 mg/dL.
Doctor :   For individuals at very high risk of heart disease, LDL cholesterol level of about 70 mg/dL and a total cholesterol level between 140 and 150 mg/dL is recommended. The LDL cholesterol levels between 60 and 70 mg/dL are not only safe but can help slow or even reverse coronary artery disease.
