What cholesterol levels are normal?
print icon
  • Total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol (sometimes known as “bad cholesterol) tend to be the focus of discussion when blood tests are done.
  • Normal total cholesterol is less than 5mmol/L
  • Normal LDL is less then 3mmol/L, but basically, the lower the better.
  • However, in people who have other risk factors (for example, diabetes), the ideal or target levels for total and LDL cholesterol are lower.
  • HDL cholesterol should ideally be above 1.6mmol/L
