Which book cover is better?

You're great, thank you!

What are "normal" cholesterol blood (LDL, HDL, TG, VLDL, VHDL, AP) levels?

It seems like we need a cheat sheet for cholesterol blood numbers! LDL is Optimal at less than 100 mg/dL and near optimal or still considered ok at 100-129 mg/dL - LDL is better when it is lower. HDL Normal is between 40 and 60.

Below 40 is to low and above 60 is to high. TG is Triglycerides and they are normal below the 150 point. They also impact your LDL number so if your TG level is high your LDL may be also Normal VLDL range is 5 and 40 mg/dL.

This is a percentage of the triglycerides I'm not sure if the AP level you are looking for is Alkaline phosphatase or something else. Alkaline phosphatase normal level is 44 to 147 IU/L (international units per liter. A higher level can indicate liver problems.

I have not had any conversations about AP level (or vHDL levels either for that matter) when I have been under care for my cholesterol levels so I will be looking back to see if someone else provides more info on these.
