What should your cholesterol level be?

 
 
 
Ask your GP for a blood test to check your cholesterol levels. This will determine the amount of LDL (bad cholesterol) and HDL (good cholesterol) in your blood. It is important to ask your doctor or nurse for a breakdown of your cholesterol levels and to ask them to explain the significance of your ratio of LDL and HDL cholesterol levels.
