TRIGLYCERIDES ADULTS: Desirable <150 mg/dL; Borderline High 150 - 199 mg/dL; High 200 - 499 mg/dL; Very High >500 mg/dL. HDL: Low <40 mg/dL; Normal 40 - 60 mg/dl; High >60 mg/dL (negative risk factor for CHD). LDL: Optimal <100 mg/dL; Near Optimal: 100 - 129 mg/dL; Borderline High 130 - 159 mg/dL; High 160 - 189 mg/dL; Very High >190 mg/dL. Patient's individual LDL-cholesterol goal may differ based on the presence of risk factors for cardiovascular disease.
