Low Cholesterol Seems Safe

Researchers say low levels of low density lipoprotein (LDL) (also called bad cholesterol) seem to be safe for heart patients who are taking statins.//

Those taking high doses of statins can lower their LDL cholesterol from over 200 milligrams/deciliters to as low as 40 mg/dL. No one knows whether such levels are safe.

Dr. Christopher P. Cannon, a cardiologist at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, and his colleagues studied patients who had ultra-low cholesterol levels. They found it was better for the patients when the cholesterol went down to 40 or 50 mg/dL, rather than 70 or 80 mg/dL.

Those with cholesterol levels of lower than 60 mg/dL had fewer heart attacks, strokes, cardiac death, chest pain or additional heart procedures compared with other groups.

It's recommended that LDL cholesterol should be lower than 100mg/dL.
