Desirable: Below 200 mg/dL                      
Borderline high: 200-239 mg/dL
High: 240 mg/dL and above

LDL cholesterol
(U.S. and some other countries)         
Below 70 mg/dL         Ideal for people at very high risk of heart disease
Below 100 mg/dL       Ideal for people at risk of heart disease
100-129 mg/dL           Near ideal
130-159 mg/dL           Borderline high
160-189 mg/dL           High
190 mg/dL and above Very high
your target LDL may be below 100 mg/dL (2.6 mmol/L)
