Lab tests are a very important guide for you to  detect how our body is working. They are parameters,  and when they are out of range, that means that we would be talking about certain problems that  our body is going trough.

I will leave you here the lipids reference ranges for you to learn how to read it,  or to detect a problem  based on the results of laboratory tests. The most common and appropriate practice is that you keep doing laboratory tests and check them up at least once or twice a year, and every three months if you are an adult over 65 and have a chronic disease like high blood pressure, diabetes, etc. Prevention is they key.

Range should be from  35  to 150 mg/dl

Cholesterol (LDL) known as  "The bad one"
Range should be   from 70  to 130 mg/dl

Cholesterol (HDL) known as "The good one"
Range should be greater than  50 mg/dl

Cholesterol total: Range should be less than 200 mg/dl

The lipid blood test  measures the fats that are present in  blood, and it indicates whether a person is at risk for heart disease or atherosclerosis, which is a condition that is extremely serious as well, as it can cause a stroke if not treated on time.

We should regularly check our blood  through laboratory tests,  because excess fat tends to deposit on the walls of the veins and arteries causing major health problems.

These results should be evaluated by your treating physician, however, I intend to guide you, so you can also interpret test results, and at the same time,  encouraged to act promptly.  

Recommendations to improve  levels of lipid blood test:

Exercise regularly.

Avoid tobacco, a
lcohol and physical inactivity.

Eat healthfully.
