The upper normal value for total cholesterol is in the vicinity of 200 mg/dl. The atherogenic risk of an elevated total cholesterol level can be further defined by determining the LDL and HDL cholesterol. The LDL cholesterol level should not exceed 160 mg/dl and the HDL level should not be lower than 35 mg/dl for men and 45 mg/dl for women...
