CHD Risk

Cholesterol 0 – 199 mg/dL   200 – 239 mg/dL >239 mg/dL  
HDL Cholesterol >59 mg/dL     <40 mg/dL  
LDL Cholesterol(calc) <100 100 – 129 130 – 159 160 – 189 >189
Triglyceride 0 – 149 mg/dL   150 – 199 mg/dL 200 – 500 mg/dL >500 mg/dL

 

LDL (calc) is invalid if the Triglycerides are greater than 400 mg/dL. In this situation, a direct LDL cholesterol measurement is recommended. – Executive Summary of The Third Report of The National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP) Expert Panel on Detection, Evaluation, and Treatment of High Blood Cholesterol in Adults (Adult Treatment Panel III).
