cholesterol level is 220 is that bad for my health
Cholesterol level <200 is normal; 200-239 is borderline while cholesterol >240 is high.
The good news is that lifestyle changes (e.g., exercises, healthy diets) are effective in helping you reduce cholesterol levels. They’re also fairly straightforward and can be done at any age.
