ideal is less than 70 if you have heart disease, diabetes, kidney disease or heart disease equivalent, if you have neither of these then this is good, good luck

LDL Cholesterol Levels
Less than 100 mg/Dal Optimal
100 to 129 mg/Dal Near Optimal/ Above Optimal
130 to 159 mg/Dal Borderline High
160 to 189 mg/Dal High
190 mg/Dal and above Very High

Meaning that
Less than 130 is best.
Between 130 to 159 is borderline high.
160 or more means you’re at higher risk for heart disease

It is good. According to a recent blood screen including lipid panel, the reference range for LDL is < 130.

For HDL the range is 40-100, and total cholesterol 70-200. The Cholesterol/HDL ratio range is 0.00 to 4.97, so look at yours, as the ratio is more indicative of heart health than just the good HDL and bad LDL readings. Triglicerides (a form of fat) are important also, with a range of 40-150. Maybe you should ask your doctor’s opinion of your overall test results.

Hey there are many sites that can offer pages like "understanding cholesterol results" or something like that.. you will find complete tables of data regarding cholesterol results and the numbers! There is also more information to be found at Find your low cholesterol diet | How to lower cholesterol?
