What is a good cholesterol level?

The National Diabetes Education Program also advises to - once a year - checking your cholesterol level. If LDL is over 100, ask what steps are recommended to reach your goal.

High cholesterol and low blood sugar.


If you have diabetes, you need to eat healthy foods, stay at a healthy weight, and be active or exercise every day.
You should follow a diabetes food plan to achieve normal cholesteral levels; Ask your docter if you don't have one. This page shows a list of foods that lower it.

The major factor influencing blood cholesterol (also written as chlosterol or chlosteral) is how much saturated fat there is in the food. Most soft or liquid margarines contain less saturated fat; take the transfat-free margarines.

Mentioning transfats here, it is better to avoid transfats - the chemical ones as well as the natural ones - also known as Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA). From research we learn that transfats increase the 'bad' cholesterol in the blood and lower the 'good' cholesterol.
