What are my ideal cholestrol levels?
Not an easy question
The cardiology experts made the answer to your question much more complicated this year. Previously, treatment targets were in the form of LDL (bad) cholesterol levels: ideal LDL was under 70 mg/dL for high-risk patients with known cholesterol-clogged arteries, while LDL under 130 mg/dL was good for low-risk patients.
Now, these LDL targets have been replaced by medication dosing guidelines yikes!
