Consumers over age 20 should have their cholesterol level screened. Cholesterol is used to classify your risk for cardiovascular disease. There are two types of cholesterol: High Density Lipoprotein (HDL), and Low-Density Lipoprotein (LDL). Desirable HDL levels fall in the 60 mg/dl range. Desirable LDL levels are below 130 mg/dl. When levels are above this level, your physician should begin regular monitoring, or intervention measures, depending on the reading.
