Goal cholesterol. Hello, Thanks for your question. Recent cholesterol guidelines place more of an emphasis on patients risk factors rather then isolated numbers when determining the need for a cholesterol reducing medication. For example, age, medical history, gender to name a few. Without knowing your numbers its difficult to know if its high but the general goal LDL for non-diabetics should be <130.
