How To Lower Your Cholesterol
More than half of the world today has high cholesterol. What this means is that every other
person that you see walking down the street is at risk for some sort of heart disease. The
average person doesn’t even know how their cholesterol stands because you can’t see high
cholesterol. However, the stats stand for themselves when it comes to your cholesterol; you
need to understand it in order to be able to deal with it. Once you get past the code, it is very
easy to understand.
There are actually five different ways that you can use in order to get a complete reading on
your own cholesterol levels and they are: total cholesterol levels, HDL, LDL, total/HDL ratio,
LDL/HDL ratio. These measurements are actually written down to be what is desirable and what
is not desirable. Measurement units for checking your cholesterol are conducted as milligrams
per deciliter. It is extremely confusing if you try to look at these separately. You can talk to your
doctor if you really want to understand your cholesterol levels and what, if anything, you need to
do about them or how to maintain them properly.
