A total blood lipid profile gives you the best possible statistical indication of your all round cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk. According to research, to come as close as possible to eliminating any threat of heart disease and stroke (the number one and number three top killers in the U.S.), your blood lipid profile would look like this:
- total cholesterol below 150 mg/dl
- total low-density lipoproteins (LDL) below 130 mg/dl
- total high-density lipoproteins HDL) above 40 mg/dl
- a ratio of LDL divided by HDL 3 to 1 or lower
- total triglycerides below 150 mg/dl
