I'm from Texas, USA so the means of measure (the numbers) is different from what I am used to seeing. However, I searched "High Cholesterol
in the UK". I found one site that explains a good deal about it along with levels that are generally regarded as desirable. They are:
- Total cholesterol
(TC) - 5.0 mmol/l or less. However, about 2 in 3 adults in the UK have a total cholesterol level of 5.0 mmol/l or above.
- Low-density lipoprotein
(LDL) cholesterol after an overnight fast: 3.0 mmol/l or less.
- High-density lipoprotein
) cholesterol: 1.2 mmol/l or more.
- TC/HDL ratio: 4.5 or less. That is, your total cholesterol divided by your HDL cholesterol. This reflects the fact that for any given total cholesterol level, the more HDL, the better.
Information on assessing (calculating) your cardiovascular health risk is included.
