    In a lipid profile, the normal levels:

    LDL 50 mg/dl

    Triglycerides <150 mg/dl

    total cholesterol < 150 mg/dl

  2. Habits are delimited to food that you soak up and the actions that you have everyday. These are main components that affect your health. If you’re fond of eating meat which might be filled with fats, processed foods like sausages and ham, French fries, and different food containing saturated fats, then you’ll positively endanger your well being by doubling-up the copy of LDL in your body. The meals that we eat triggers the liver to provide more cholesterol.
