I ate unhealthy at a young age, but never had any problems like cholesterol and blood pressure. Am healthy now, but could child diet affectme late on?

Don't worry

There is a "pop" / government claim that the primary prevention of atherosclerosis must begin in early childhood with diet, simply because of the existence of fatty streaks -- tiny spots in arteries superficially resembling real disease and seen in all youngsters. Most of my fellow-pathologists discount this and believe these lesions are inconsequential. Adopt a fitness lifestyle now & it's moot.

What should the average cholesterol level be for a person to be considered healthy?

Cholesterol Varies

Total_cholesterol
You are asking a very broad question that misses the point. The Risks come from a combination of things. The Total Cholesterol count is nearly irrelevant in the bigger picture. But, the general well known cutoff for normal for this one part of the cholesterol panel is 200 mg/dl or lower.

My most recent hdl cholesterol level was 89. how high can hdl go in normal healthy people?

Unusual over 100

Open-uri20130303-29713-s2mv2n
HDL cholesterol (HDL-C) levels over 100 are vary uncommon. In general, high HDL-C may be the result of genetics (hyperalphalipoproteinemia), exercise, increased alcohol intake, or medications (niacin, fibrates). Rare causes include obstruction in the biliary tract, very high blood levels of Dilantin, and organophosphate toxicity.

Anyone know what is a healthy cholesterol level for a 16 year old girl who weighs about 110?

The best..

Total_cholesterol
..is a total cholesterol less than 120. In general, the higher your HDL (good cholesterol) and the lower your LDL (bad cholesterol) the better. Up to 160-180 is still alright, but the LDL needs to stay less than 100. Over 200 is high.

If Ldl cholesterol is known as the "bad" artery clogging cholesterol is there a healthy level?

Less than 100

Open-uri20120727-15056-1bhvxkq
LDL that is less than 100 is considered optimal. If you have heart disease then your doctor may recommend that it be less than 70.

I know Ldl cholesterol is known as the "bad" artery clogging cholesterol, but are there healthy levels that are good for you?

Depends on Particles

Open-uri20130101-9961-11q0rnn
LDL can be estimated by cholesterol (LDL-C) or measured by particle number (ApoB or NMR LDL-P). However, LDL-C and LDL-P do not equally predict cardiovascular risk. When LDL-C and LDL-P values disagree (due to cholesterol variability per particle) CVD risk tracks with LDL particle number, not LDL-C values. Ideal LDL-P values are <1000 nmol/L for high risk patients and <1300 nmol for everyone else.
