What should a healthy cholesterol count be ?

Mine is 5.4. I agree with you Ivan on this one, after they told me the result, that was it, no explaining or anything.

As most have said 5 or below, , so if you aim for 4.9 you will be good,, if in doubt go and see your doctor and you can, if you need it, get medication to lower it, If you are of an age, by that i mean a younger person, then you can lower it yourself by looking at your diet, Try to eat less fatty foods for a while, But 5.4 is not so bad,if you can get rid of that .4,happy days
