Normal is under 150, borderline risk is 150-199, high is 200+. HDL: Higher is better. Under 40 is bad, 40-60 is normal, 60+ (for those lucky few that can achieve it) is considered actively protective against heart disease. HDL and triglycerides are currently considered the best predictors of heart disease. Having triglycerides less than double HDL is ideal, having triglycerides more than four times HDL indicates risk. LDL: Under 100 is generally still the goal for smokers or those with family history of heart disease, under 130 is normal for everyone else. Total ldl measurement isn't very useful without a particle size test. High amounts of small ldl contributes to risk when you have other problem factors, large ldl is not a problem. Keto tends to result in lots of large ldl and not much small. Total cholesterol: Under 200 is considered optimal, 200-240 borderline, 240+ is high. Total cholesterol just isn't a good predictor of heart disease, especially since better predictors can vary so wildly within the same total cholesterol value.
