What Is A Normal Cholesterol Level?

Find out what do your total cholesterol numbers mean. Discover why Dr. Sam Robbins, recommends CholesLo ™ as the solution for lowering your cholesterol with less effort and time. 👉 http://drsam.co/yt/CholesterolLevels-CholesLo ********************* What Is A Normal Cholesterol Level? *************************** Cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like substance that is naturally present in cell walls or membranes everywhere in the body. Your body uses cholesterol to produce many hormones, as well as one of the most important vitamins in the body – Vitamin D. High cholesterol in your bloodstream can lead to narrowing of the arteries, which can cause a heart attack or stroke. Your goal is to have “healthy” cholesterol levels – not too high or too low. Your goal should be to keep cholesterol level below 140 mg/dL. What do your total cholesterol numbers mean? Your total blood cholesterol is measure of LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, and other lipid components. It is a combination of numerous numbers and this is why most people just focus on this number for simplicity reasons. Improving your cholesterol levels is very important but it is just one factor out of many, when it comes to preventing and reversing heart disease. You also need to improve your HDL/LDL ratios, triglycerides, homocysteine and other lipid levels. Managing your lipid profiles is probably one of the most important aspects to health, longevity, and disease prevention. Making dramatic life-style changes — such as eating much better, eliminating many different foods and exercising daily — is very important but for many people can be difficult to start and it takes a longer time to see results. Do you know how to start easier and get faster results? CholesLo ™ contains ingredients that have been scientifically research and clinically tested to help support healthy cholesterol levels.

Cholesterol Levels Chart Explanation - HDL and LDL cholesterol

In this video, you will find out what is the optimum cholesterol level and how HDL and LDL should be balanced. And if you want to discover a proven way to lower cholesterol naturally, click this link: ►► http://drsam.co/yt/cholesterolchart-choleslo And if you want to watch another video called "What is a normal cholesterol level?", click here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B1TEIwTUaeQ =============================================== Cholesterol Levels Chart - Balance between HDL and LDL =============================================== Hi … this is Dr. Sam Robbins Today’s question is from Debbie and she asks “Can you please explain and simplify the cholesterol numbers and charts?” This is a good question because I think we should all know more about how our body works because nobody will care more about your health than you will. First we have your “Total Cholesterol” numbers, which is the sum of all the cholesterol in your blood. As you can see from the chart, your goal should be less than 200mg/dL. However, I’d like to point out that I personally believe that anything less than 150mg/dL is TOO LOW! And yes, your cholesterol can be “too low” and I think that’s just as bad as “too high”, which is over 240mg/dL What most people don’t know or understand, is that your body NEEDS cholesterol and it has many important functions, such as: ● Producing your “sex hormones”, such as testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, DHEA and similar “youth” hormones ● Utilizing Vitamin D and other fat-soluble vitamins, which help your bones, nerves, metabolism, skin elasticity, strong immunity and so forth. ● Proper brain function, memory, cognition, balancing dopamine, serotonin and other “feel good” neurotransmitters. And this is a major problem with cholesterol lowering “statin” drugs and why they cause: ● Impotence ● Memory loss ● Accelerated aging ● Depression ● Etc. In a minute I’ll show you how you can easily improve your cholesterol levels naturally, WITHOUT the use of these harmful drugs or a restrictive diet. However, what I’d like to point out is that what matters most is the CORRECT BALANCE in your lipid levels, which is what I want to talk about next and that’s your HDL/LDL ratios... =HDL= First I’d like to start with your HDL, which is short for “high density lipoprotein”. Your HDL is considered the "good" cholesterol because it can help decrease the cholesterol buildup in the walls of your arteries, that causes narrowing of their openings. Generally speaking, the higher your HDL, the better. For example, after giving my mom some specific herbs that I’ll tell you about in a minute, I was able to raise her “good” HDL from 52 mg/dL to 94 mg/dL Her cardiologist and I are very happy because sometimes my mom’s TOTAL cholesterol goes in the “borderline high” range (200-239 mg/dL). However, we’re okay with that because her “good” HDL is so high and thus, very protective. =LDL= Lastly, I’d like to finish with your LDL, which is short for “low density lipoprotein”. Your LDL is considered the "bad" cholesterol because the risk of heart disease goes up if you have high levels of LDL. So you want this to be LOW This is basically the OPPOSITE of what HDL does. =Summary= Remember, your goal is to have healthy cholesterol levels between the range of 150-200 mg/dL. Too LOW is just as bad as too HIGH. And what matters most with your cholesterol numbers is your HDL/LDL ratios. You want your “good” HDL to be high and “bad” LDL to be low. A good way to remember this is the “H” in HDL for HIGH and “L” in LDL for LOW. I hope this video was helpful and gave your more clarity.

Cholesterol Levels LDL - HDL

To determine the normal levels of cholesterol in the blood, see description of cholesterol levels as follows: Less than 200 mg per dl It is a measure of normal cholesterol levels. That is the amount of total cholesterol LDL (bad cholesterol), HDL (good cholesterol), and triglycerides less than 200 mg per dl, thus heart disease will not snoop us. But that does not mean you continue to eat fatty foods that you know, (wah still normal, free to eat anything) remains set diet and exercising In the range of 200-239 mg per dl Including cholesterol levels are sufficient. If it's your cholesterol levels are in the range of 200-239 mg per dl, you should check to a laboratory to determine the details of the levels of LDL, HDL, and triglycerides. More than 240 mg per dl High-risk cholesterol levels. Why is that, because a person with a measure cholesterol levels are likely to develop heart disease. Normal levels of HDL cholesterol HDL levels normal for men ranges between 40-50 mg per dl, and between 20-60 mg per dl for women. If higher levels of HDL, the less the risk of heart disease. Normal levels of LDL cholesterol Conversely, the fewer the levels of LDL in the blood, the less risk of heart disease. In general, LDL levels are divided into the following categories; less than 100 mg per dl = very good Between 100-129 mg per dl = normal Between 130-159 mg per dl = sufficient Between 160-189 mg per dl = high more than 190 mg per dl = very high cholesterol levels by age cholesterol levels normal cholesterol levels in food

6 SIGNS THAT YOU MAY HAVE HIGH CHOLESTEROL
 
05:02
Why is it so important to keep cholesterol at the normal levels and how to maintain it within the health limits? Cholesterol is a vital, fat-like substance that is contained in each cell of our body, as well as in our blood. Most of the cholesterol is produced by the liver, and the rest is procured through food. Please subscribe, click the bell and watch this video until the end to know the complete information. Cholesterol has extremely important reasons for our body and functions: it participates in the construction of cell membranes and in the formation of sexes and adrenal hormones; without cholesterol, the body can not synthesize vitamin D, which is indispensable to healthy bones, nor produces bile acid, without which fat in the body cannot be processed properly. When an excess of cholesterol accumulates in the body, it can not be broken down and this increases the risks to our health. The main danger is the onset of atherosclerosis, which in turn is the cause of most cardiovascular diseases such as a heart attack for example. The causes of increased levels of cholesterol in the blood are different: hereditary predisposition, chronic liver disease thyroid gland and diabetes. A sure way to maintain a normal cholesterol level is regular testing. Specialists recommend except for total, to monitor still poor (LDL) and good (HDL) cholesterol, as well as triglycerides. It is known that 20 years is the age in which the first examination for determining the values of cholesterol should be done. Revealed in time, increased cholesterol can be overcome and can not lead to serious health problems later. Here are 6 signs that you may have high cholesterol. 1. yellow growths on your eyelids. Did you know that yellowish eyelid can be a sign of high cholesterol? Take a good look at the eyelids, if you notice yellow spots, make a doctor’s appointment, check your cholesterol levels and your heart’s health. Also, do you notice painless yellow growths of the upper and lower eyelids? This phenomenon is called “xanthelasma” and it is a clear indication that you have high blood cholesterol levels. 2. gray-colored ring around your cornea. Often this is a sign of aging, so it should not be a cause for worry. But if you are far from retired, the gray circle around the iris may indicate high cholesterol and blood fat, which very often means a risk of heart attack or stroke. This gray colored ring or lacquer is actually composed of cholesterol that collects in the deeper parts of your cornea. 3. tingling sensation in the hands and feet. The tingling sensation of the hands and feet may indicate a problem in your body. This should be taken seriously because these symptoms can be caused by serious health problems. If the blood vessels are blocked by cholesterol, it is likely that you will feel tingling in your hands and feet, because your peripheral nerves are not getting do enough blood oxygen and nutrients for their proper functioning. 4. pain in the neck and back of the head. Because cholesterol levels that are too high can cause some of your blood vessels to block, it’s very possible that your circulation is obstructed. Such can leave your neck sensitive and deteriorate from time to time. The shoulder can also be felt in the same way. Medical practitioners say that high blood cholesterol levels can also make you have a headache, especially in the back of your head. 5. rapid or pounding beating of the heart. When a person says that she has heart palpitations, she thinks of the inner feeling that her heart beats something different from the usual one. Or, it simply has the awareness of the heartbeat. Most of the time, heart palpitations are harmless and they are often experienced after exercise or engaging in the intense physical activity. Sometimes they are due to anxiety, stress, and the intake of certain drugs. Palpitations may also indicate problems with the cardiovascular system, but and high cholesterol levels are one of them. Clogging the blood vessels due to cholesterol can lead to an accelerated operation of your heart. 6. unhealthy diet and lifestyle. If you eat plenty of fatty foods and avoid fruits and vegetables that contain a lot of fiber if you are a smoker and if you drink alcohol in excessive amounts, if you are overweight and do not exercise regularly, then there is a great chance that your cholesterol level is already high. But sometimes high cholesterol depends on our genes. About 1 in 500 people have a specific genetic mutation that leads to the accumulation of cholesterol in their blood. These people suffer from high cholesterol regardless of their lifestyle. if you suspect that you may have high cholesterol then please start eating a healthy diet and get levels checked out at the hospital.

Understanding Cholesterol Levels LDL, HDL and Total Cholesterol

Understanding Cholesterol Levels LDL, HDL and Total Cholesterol Testing for total and HDL cholesterol does not require fasting. If your total cholesterol is 200 mg/dL or more, or if your HDL cholesterol is less than 40 mg/dL, your doctor will likely recommend that you have a lipoprotein panel.

What is cholesterol ratio and why is it important?
 
06:05
What is cholesterol ratio and why is it important? Working out a person's cholesterol ratio is important because it can help a doctor determine a person's risk of heart disease. Doctors calculate an individual's cholesterol ratio by dividing their total cholesterol by their high-density lipoprotein level. The optimal ratio is between 3.5 and 1. A higher ratio increases the risk of heart disease. Good cholesterol ratio vs. bad cholesterol ratio: Total cholesterol levels are made up of three different types of cholesterol. High-density lipoprotein, or HDL, is considered "good" cholesterol. It makes up 20 to 30 percent of a person's total cholesterol level. Low-density lipoprotein, or LDL, is considered "bad" cholesterol and makes up 60 to 70 percent of the total in the body. Finally, very-low-density lipoprotein (VLDL), is a precursor to LDL and makes up about 10 to 15 percent of a person's total cholesterol. These percentages matter because when increases or decreases occur, they can affect the chances of a person developing heart disease. When a person has a test that shows a high total cholesterol level, it may be because LDL cholesterol levels have climbed. A doctor can determine the different levels of cholesterol by focusing on HDL, LDL, and VLDL separately, in a blood test. A good cholesterol ratio shows that the body is working properly and is healthy. It signals that someone is in good health and is probably taking care of themselves. The Framingham Heart Study states that the following cholesterol ratios roughly signal different degrees of heart disease risk: Men: 5.0: average risk 3.4: half the average risk 9.6: twice the average risk Women: 4.4: average risk 3.3: half the average risk 7.0: twice the average risk While men and women have the same blood test, their average HDL, LDL, and VLDL levels are typically different. For example, in the case of menopausal women, it is usual for them to have an increased LDL. This does not mean that women are unaffected by bad cholesterol ratios. It simply means women have shown to be less susceptible to bad cholesterol ratios. Women should have a recommended HDL level of 50, while a man's recommended HDL level is 40.

► What Is VLDL Cholesterol ?
 
09:31
How my parents lowered their cholesterol by 30 pts in 30 days - no diets or drugs: ►► http://drsam.co/yt/LowerCholesterol ====================== What Is VLDL Cholesterol? ====================== There is also something called VLDL, which stands for Very Low-Density Lipoprotein. The main purpose of VLDL is to distribute the triglyceride produced by your liver. Because VLDL contains a high level of triglyceride, having a high VLDL level means you may have an increased risk of coronary artery disease, which can lead to a heart attack or stroke. Higher amounts and large VLDL particles are also associated with an increased risk of high blood pressure and stroke. This is a subject that’s very important to be because both my parents were diagnosed with “high cholesterol” over 15 years ago and my father also had a stroke a couple years ago. So, I’m very familiar with this topic… And what I’ve discovered over the past 20 years is that your goal should be to create TOTAL heart health… The 4 Healthiest, Fastest, Easiest & Safest Ways Of Lowering Your “Bad” VLDL/LDL Cholesterol Naturally… 1. DIET Of course you know your diet is very important, so let me give a quick overview and summary. Carbohydrates – Eliminate or at least limit all man-made carbohydrates – such as cakes, crackers, breads, chips, etc. Anything that comes in a “box”, isn’t good for you. Stick to natural carbohydrates such as vegetables, fruits, legumes, sweet potatoes and a small amount of steel-cut oatmeal. Proteins – Americans eat way too much animal protein. Reduce the protein and limit it to vegetable sources, grass fed bison and wild-caught fish such as salmon. Please stop eating dairy and soy because they cause negative hormonal changes by reducing your thyroid, increasing toxic estrogens and stress hormones – and all of this leads to excess body fat and cancer. Fats – They are very important for proper hormone function. The best are RAW almonds, walnuts, avocados, fish oil and extra virgin coconut oil. Stay away from the man-made, super market oils such as soybean, sesame, canola, corn, sunflower and similar oils and products. Definitely NO margarine either. ALL these fats cause imbalances in hormones and lead to heart disease with long-term usage. Fiber – Eat lots of fiber, about 10-25 grams daily. The best sources would be from vegetables, legumes, fruits with skin, and nuts (walnuts are best). 2. EXERCISE All you need is 20-30 minutes of “something”, 3-4x a week. Walking is a great start… Lifting weights has many hormonal benefits. Swimming, playing sports, etc. are all very helpful. Pick something fun and stick to it. Be consistent! 3. STRESS MANAGEMENT The topic of “stress” is big, can be complicated and requires its own space and I’ll discuss this topic in the future. But stress really does “kill” because of all the negative hormonal changes. My only advice here is that YOU must manage how your REACT to stress. Do you best to spend your time on the SOLUTIONS in life, rather than complain about “the problems”. 4. NATURAL HERBS & VITAMINS [important!] This made the biggest difference for my own parents. There are about half a dozen really good, scientifically researched herbs and natural ingredients that help create healthy cholesterol levels, triglycerides and improve your HDL/LDL ratios. But there’s something else I want you to consider… The BIG Picture Did you know that heart disease is the #1 killer2, killing more people each year than ALL the other diseases COMBINED?!!2 So, improving your cholesterol levels is very important… but it’s just ONE factor out of many, when it comes to decreasing and turning-back heart disease. You also need to improve your HDL/LDL ratios, triglycerides, homocysteine and other lipid levels. Ultimately, your goal isn’t even to lower cholesterol or to reduce heart disease – but to NOT have a heart attack or stroke. It’s to NOT die prematurely. The “Problem” Managing your lipid profiles is probably one of the most important aspects to health, longevity and disease reduction. Unfortunately, it can sometimes get confusing or you might feel overwhelmed with too much information — what to DO or NOT do. Plus, making dramatic life-style changes is very important but for many people can be difficult to start and it takes a longer time to see results. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CCYUe4I8xfU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BqU64hnrFmU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QtUp1JiHKnU ========================================­ Thank you for watching.

How To Self Test For Cholesterol
 
02:04
from the website http://www.howto.tv One important area of personal health management is testing your cholesterol levels. Anyone over 20 should have their levels checked and there is now a range of over the counter home tests that can monitor these accurately. If in doubt, ask your pharmacist which test is most suitable before you buy. The kits will come with easy to follow instructions, and give accurate results in about three minutes. Make sure you read the manufacturers guidelines carefully before proceeding with any tests. The kit should contain the sealed test, a lancet, plaster and the set of instructions. High cholesterol significantly increases the risk of having a heart attack. Cholesterol is an oily substance which is a building block for manufacturing many of the body's vital chemicals. The main reason for high cholesterol levels in this country is a poor or unhealthy diet. It's important to know what your cholesterol level is, as high levels can go undetected for a long time and become noticeable when it blocks blood vessels. There are two types of cholesterol in the body - LDL, which deposits cholesterol in arteries of the heart. HDL type actually removes cholesterol from the blood, reducing the risk of a heart attack. Some test kits show total cholesterol, others total and HDL cholesterol levels. Results on most kits are easy to interpret, reporting low, Ok or high levels. Ideally measure your cholesterol on an empty stomach. Some kits require you to fast for 12 hours before carrying out the test. The kit gives you all the equipment needed to collect a finger prick sample of whole blood - if your cholesterol levels are high, you must consult your GP for further tests, and if you have any concerns about the test itself, you should seek advice from a medical professional.

How to Raise Good Cholesterol and Lower Bad Cholesterol || Top 5 Health Tips

How to Raise Good Cholesterol and Lower Bad Cholesterol || Top 5 Health Tips ======================================== ======================================== 1. Educate yourself about good cholesterol. HDL, or high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, acts as the body's waste-disposal system in the blood. HDL combs through blood for bad cholesterol, LDL, and flushes it out to your liver for disposal. HDL lowers inflammation throughout the body and may even help against Alzheimer's. 2. Ask your doctor for a cholesterol blood test. High cholesterol does not have overt side effects, but it can be devastating on your health. Illnesses that come from bad cholesterol are serious, and should only be treated by a healthcare professional. Your doctor may suggest changes in lifestyle or diet if your HDL measures less than 60 mg/dL. 3. Calculate your total blood cholesterol. Having ‘good cholesterol’ is a combination of limiting LDLs and increasing HDLs. While you may be doing one of these very well, it is helpful to see the big picture if you are falling behind on the other. To calculate total blood cholesterol, add your LDL, HDL, and 20 percent of your triglycerides. 4. Set a target for your good HDL. Cholesterol is measured in milligrams per deciliter of blood. People whose HDL levels are beneath 60 mg/dL are considered at risk for heart disease. Aim for a higher number of good cholesterol (higher than 60 mg/dL but less than 200 mg/dL). 5. Exercise regularly. Increase your heart rate for at least a half hour 5 times a week by doing things like playing basketball, raking, walking, running, bicycling or swimming. Gyms can be great exercise tools, but try not to completely upend your daily routine at once. Enthusiasm for drastically new and exciting exercise routines often ends with a return to inactivity.

What Is A Good Cholesterol Level?
 
04:09
Hi! I'm robo-Suzie and today I'll talk to you about What Is A Good Cholesterol Level. Also don't forget to subscribe for more tips in the future! But back to our topic. Whenever you read anything about losing weight or a healthy diet cholesterol is often mentioned. But what exactly is it and what is a good cholesterol level to aim for?Let's start with cholesterol and why it's so important then we can appreciate why so much emphasis it put on our cholesterol level. Cholesterol is a steroid and can be ingested in food or made in the liver. Here is a list of the functions of cholesterol. 1. It plays a major role in the production of other steroidal hormones. 2. It is an important part of your body cell membranes. 3. When it breaks down it forms bile salts that help in the digestion of fats. 4. Vitamin D is formed from a number of chemical reactions, one of which involves cholesterol and sunlight on your skin. As you can see cholesterol is essential to life. So why is it generally viewed as a bad thing? If you don't eat cholesterol or saturated fat your liver takes over and makes enough for your bodies requirements. It is transported round your body in proteins in blood. Your liver converts saturated fat into cholesterol. If you regularly eat too much saturated fat or cholesterol it begins to deposit on the sides of the blood vessels forming thickened areas known as atheromas. Thickening of the arteries is known as atherosclerosis. It can lead to damage of your blood vessels causing them to narrow. Eventually the blood vessel may become blocked cutting off the supply of blood to the tissue immediately after the blockage. If this happens in the heart it causes angina and eventually myocardial infarction. Atheromas may also cause the blood to form clots in the damaged area. If the clots break off, forming a thrombus, and then begins to travel around the circulation it may eventually cause another blockage leading to a stroke or myocardial infarction. It is vital to your health to make sure your cholesterol levels remains low, but what is a normal acceptable cholesterol level? Here is the normal cholesterol level according to The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) in the U.K. Total cholesterol should be less than 5.0 millimoles of cholesterol per Litre of blood. So what does it mean by 'total cholesterol'? When cholesterol combines with proteins for transportation round the blood circulation it forms either low density lipoproteins (LDL) or high density lipoproteins (HDL). HDLs are considered to be good fat whereas LDLs form atheromas and are considered to be bad fat. Total cholesterol is the measurement of HDL and LDL combined. Since it is more useful to know how much bad fat is circulating in your blood LDLs are often measured separately. NICE considers a safe level of LDL to be LDL cholesterol should be less than 3.0 millimoles of LDL per Litre of blood. If you are at risk from cardiovascular disease or have a family history of cardiovascular disease your doctor may prefer to your cholesterol level to be even lower than those recommended by NICE. The recommended levels may also differ slightly from country to country. You can influence your cholesterol level by reducing the amount of saturated fat you eat. Dairy products containing plant stanols are widely available in your supermarket. Research has shown that plant stanols have cholesterol lowering properties. Your doctor may decide to prescribe cholesterol lowering medication which is referred to as HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors or statins. Your doctor may need to adjust the dose until the desired cholesterol level is reached. These drugs are very effective and you shouldn't stop taking them unless your doctor advises you to. That's it! Thank you. Please subscribe, comment and like this video if it was helpful! See you soon!
