Ask Your Health Question and Get an Answer ASAP
Thank you for your question. I am here to help.
With HDL (good) cholesterol, higher levels are better.
Low HDL cholesterol (less than 40 mg/dL for men, less than 50 mg/dL for women) puts you at higher risk for heart disease.
In the average man, HDL cholesterol levels range from 40 to 50 mg/dL.
An HDL cholesterol of 60 mg/dL or higher gives some protection against heart disease.
Smoking, being overweight and being sedentary can all result in lower HDL cholesterol.
To raise your HDL level, avoid tobacco smoke, maintain a healthy weight and get at least 30-60 minutes of physical activity more days than not.(CLicking the remote doesn't count)
Fish oil capsules will help raise your good ( HDL) and lower your Bad(LDL)
Other things that can hep are:
Garlic and increased fiber.
Let me know if you have more questions.
