The Importance Of Knowing Normal Cholesterol Levels

Cholesterol is a fat compound produced by a variety of cells in the body, and roughly a quarter of the cholesterol generated in the body is produced by liver cells. Basically the body needs cholesterol to stay healthy.

The cholesterol check dose should be shown periodically to monitor the overall health condition. So, when should we feel the cholesterol measure control?

If you smoke, have excessive weight, high blood pressure, diabetes and there are families with a history of heart disease, it is recommended that you run the control since the age of 20 years.

However, if you do not smoke and do not suffer from the following diseases the control can be start from the age of 35 years. If the result is normal, you can re-check it every 5 years. Once. But, if you have a high level of cholesterol, it is recommended that the control be shown more often. What is more, if you have diabetes, heart and kidney problems.

There are two styles of cholesterol, namely good cholesterol and bad cholesterol. Good cholesterol (HDL-High Density Lipoprotein) is beneficial to avoid the occurrence of atheroma or narrowing of blood vessels due to fat. While the bad cholesterol (LDL-Low Density Lipoprotein) is not true one of the main causes of atheroma formation. In addition to good and bad cholesterol, there is fat in other forms in the blood called triglycerides.

Ateroma itself is a trigger of heart disease that is known to be counted as an atherolerosis or hardening of blood vessels. An ateroma is a fat plaque that accumulates in the artery walls of blood vessels. After months, over many years, the following plaque thickens and extends. At that time, blood vessels were clogged and caused a smooth flow of blood. This condition can cause a heart attack, stroke, or other correct problem.

Before you run the cholesterol level control, you must fast more – first for 9-12 hours.  Measurement of cholesterol dose is indicated by understanding how many milligrams (mg) of cholesterol is contained in each deciliter (dL) blood.

Here is the normal dose for the types of cholesterol that exist in the blood.

Good cholesterol

The higher the level of good or HDL cholesterol, the longer it can be good for health. This is because HDL keeps stems from heart disease. HDL levels at least 60 mg/dL or more can help reduce the risk of heart disease. Conversely, the level of HDL is not quite derived from 40 mg/dL precisely increases the risk of heart disease.

Bad cholesterol

Due to its evil nature, LDL or bad cholesterol should be at a low or tolerable level of the body, i.e. not quite derived from 100 mg/dL. The amount of LDL 100-129 mg/dL can be said as a tolerance threshold. If exceeding the following quantity of bad cholesterol can cause various health problems such as ateroma, heart disease, and stroke.

The amount of LDL 130-159 mg/dL can be said to enter a high threshold, and if the amount has reached 160-189 mg/dL has entered a high level. While the quantity of LDL 190 mg/dL and the rest, already at a really high level.

Insufficient cholesterol levels derived from 200 mg/dL remain tolerable. The amount of cholesterol 200-239 mg/dL is already entered on a high threshold. If the amount reached 240 mg/dL or more calculated high cholesterol levels.

Food required

To maintain normal cholesterol levels, avoid foods that contain trans fats. These fats can be found in fried foods, margarine and snacks such as biscuits.

Here is more than one food style that you can consume to lower the dose of cholesterol in the blood.

Fish such as sardines, macerels, salmon, and tuna, are rich in omega 3 quantities which are good for the heart.
Oatmeal, which can be rich in soluble fiber that can lower levels of bad cholesterol. In a day, you need at least 5-10 grams of soluble fiber. One 1/2 cups cooked oatmeal has a content of approximately 6 grams of fiber. You can add fruit on the oatmeal pulp to enrich the flavor.
Legumes such as almonds, pistachios, hazelnuts, and others can lower the risk of heart disease. You can replace fatty foods such as cheese and meat with nuts.
Olive oil, has antioxidant content that can lower levels of bad cholesterol. Use two tablespoons of olive oil in a day for your salad or cooking. Maintaining nutritious food intake to limit the dose of bad cholesterol is good, but the way to pioneer healthy lifestyle is equally important. Start to stop bad old habits, such as smoking and consuming liquor. Instead, feel the habit to exercise regularly.
