Is it possible to have a cholesterol level of 5000 ? What are the limits cholesterol can be ?

Is it possible to have a cholesterol level of 5000? What are the limits cholesterol can be ? Apparently, a guy at my work had a cholesterol level of 5000 because of some disease he had. He was given medicine that got his levels down to 1000. I never thought 5000 was a possible number and such a level would make your blood as thick as jelly.
