Were you looking for information about Cholesterol Levels? Cholestrol levels is a common misspelling of cholesterol levels.
There are several types of cholesterol levels, including LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, and total cholesterol. The higher your HDL cholesterol level, the better. The more LDL cholesterol you have in your blood, the greater your risk for heart disease. Since the total cholesterol level can be misleading (people with a healthy total cholesterol level may still have a low HDL or high LDL level), it is typically used as an overview number. Total cholesterol levels under 200 mg/dL are considered healthy, while a total level over 240 mg/dL is high.
