More Answers to “Is 124 on cholesterol abnormally low and a cause for concern.?“No it’s not. That is very good. Wow, I wish I could get mine there from 151. Get the break down from your doctor so that you know the exact numbers for the HDL (the good) and the LDL (the bad). Good job!
Registered Nurse here; Abnormally low cholesterol. Dear, this is wonderful. This is great, no such thing as cholesterol being to low. People would give there fortunes to have a reading as terrific as this. DON’T WORRY, BE HAPPY!:))
124 is a point of envy not worry.
124 is great and far under the danger range of 200 and above. Mine was 241 a couple of years ago. OUCH! I lowered it by eating beets, lentils, carrots. Now it is 180. I wouldn’t worry about 124. Maintain a healthy eating routine, and walk 15 minutes a day is what my doctor told me.
Only if this is because your HDL is under 45 for men or under 50 for women. Ask your doctor what your HDL and LDL levels are. Typically a ratio between the two of less than 3 is ideal. If your HDLs are off (less than above) adding flax seed oil or fish oil (provided you are not on blood thinners–check with the doc first) can raise these levels. Your total cholesterol would probably rise as well, but at least your “good” levels would be appropriate.
total cholesterol? 124 is fine. you want Total Cholesterol it less than 200. HDL (good cholesterol) you want above 40 for men, 50 for women. LDL (bad cholesterol) you want less than 160 if you don’t have any other health conditions. “too low” cholesterol really hasn’t been defined, but 124 is nothing at all to worry about for total cholesterol
