Understanding Cholesterol and its Impact on Heart Health
Cholesterol is often seen in a negative light, but not all cholesterol is bad. High-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol is known as the “good” cholesterol, while low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol is considered the “bad” cholesterol. Too much LDL cholesterol can build up in your arteries, leading to blockages and increasing the risk of heart attack and stroke.
Monitoring cholesterol levels is essential because it gives you insight into your heart health. By keeping track of your cholesterol levels, you can identify potential issues early on and take the necessary steps to prevent heart disease and maintain a healthier lifestyle.

Interpreting the Results and Understanding Your Cholesterol Levels
Understanding the cholesterol readings provided by the MISSION® Cholesterol Meter is crucial for assessing your heart health. The results typically include the levels of total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, and LDL cholesterol. It’s important to note that ideal cholesterol levels may vary based on individual circumstances and medical history.
Here are some general guidelines for interpreting your cholesterol readings:
- Total cholesterol: Aim for a total cholesterol level below 200 mg/dL. Higher levels may indicate a greater risk of heart disease.
- HDL cholesterol: HDL cholesterol is often called the “good” cholesterol. Higher levels are better, as they help remove LDL cholesterol from your arteries. An HDL cholesterol level of 60 mg/dL or higher is considered desirable.
- LDL cholesterol: LDL cholesterol is known as the “bad” cholesterol. Lower levels are preferable, as they reduce the risk of heart disease. Ideally, LDL cholesterol should be below 100 mg/dL, but individual targets may vary based on specific health conditions.
The MISSION® Cholesterol Meter provides accurate readings to guide you in understanding your cholesterol levels. By learning how to interpret the results, you can make informed decisions about your cardiovascular health.
Maintaining Healthy Cholesterol Levels
Keeping your cholesterol levels in check is key to maintaining a healthy heart. In addition to using the MISSION® Cholesterol Meter, here are some lifestyle changes you can incorporate into your routine:
- Adopt a heart-healthy diet: Incorporate more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats into your meals. Limit your intake of saturated fats and cholesterol-rich foods.
- Get moving: Engage in regular physical activity, such as brisk walking, jogging, swimming, or cycling. Aim for at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise per week.
- Maintain a healthy weight: Shedding excess pounds can help improve your cholesterol levels and overall heart health.
- Avoid tobacco smoke: Smoking damages your blood vessels and lowers your HDL cholesterol. If you smoke, seek help to quit, and avoid secondhand smoke whenever possible.
- Limit alcohol consumption: Excessive alcohol consumption can increase your cholesterol levels and lead to other health issues. Practice moderation or, ideally, avoid alcohol altogether.
By making these positive changes and regularly monitoring your cholesterol levels with the MISSION® Cholesterol Meter, you are taking proactive steps towards maintaining a healthier heart.
