*** This Week's Tip: Know Your Cholesterol Levels

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One important way you can lower your risk for heart disease and stroke is to keep your LDL or "bad" cholesterol level down and your HDL or "good" cholesterol level up. If you have a family or personal history of stroke, heart disease or high cholesterol, try to keep your LDL below 100 mg/dL. The good cholesterol should be at least 40 mg/dL but higher is better, and 60 mg/dL or greater gives some protection against heart disease.
