Apabila terlalu kerap makan di luar adakalanya kita menjadi buntu untuk membuat pilihan apa yang hendak dimakan. Kadang-kadang terasa semacam muak untuk makan walaupun di tempat kegemaran kita. Mungkin kerana terlalu kerap mengulangi masakan yang sama.

jakim halal logoSatu jenis masakan yang ramai di kalangan kita orang Melayu kurang meminati untuk makan (atau kurang mempunyai pilihan untuk makan yang halal) ialah jenis masakan Cina. Mungkin kerana konotasi makanan kegemaran mereka yang sentiasa ada hidangan haram membuat sesetengah orang tidak berani untuk makan masakan Cina. Ada sesetengah kita terlalu alahan dengan konotasi tersebut sehinggakan melintasi depan restoran Cina dengan asap dan bau masakannya sudah cukup untuk hilang selera.

Namun, jika benar-benar dicari terdapat banyak restoran Cina yang dimiliki oleh orang Cina yang Muslim yang menyediakan pelbagai masakan yang halal. Mungkin satu senarai lengkap restoran masakan halal yang dimiliki oleh orang-orang Cina Muslim patut dikemaskinikan oleh Persatuan Cina Muslim Malaysia pakya-corner(MACMA). [Senarai yang ada sekarang tidak begitu lengkap] Ini bukan sahaja untuk memudahkan masyarakat Islam umumnya dapat merasakan masakan Cina yang halal tetapi juga mengalakkan ikatan persaudaraan sesama Islam apabila umat Islam sama-sama membantu ekonomi saudaranya.

Salah satu yang tidak tersenarai dalam direktori MACMA tersebut ialah Pak Ya Chinese Muslim Food Corner yang dimiliki Sdr. Yahya Yeo yang telah memeluk Islam. Beliau yang berniaga bersama isterinya yang berasal dari tanah besar China turut juga memeluk Islam.

menuPak Ya yang ramah dan mesra pelanggan telah membuka restorannya di Kampung Pandan/Taman Chempaka sejak beberapa tahun lalu. Dengan membuka restorannya di kawasan yang ramai penduduk Melayu maka kebanyakkan pelanggannya terdiri dari orang-orang Melayu. Namun akan sentiasa pula kita dapati ada pelanggan Cina sendiri yang datang menjamu selera mereka di situ (tetapi tidak dapat kami pastikan sama mereka juga beragama Islam).

Yang penting bagi mana-mana kedai makan ialah rasa makasannya. Jika sedap maka majulah kedainya. Jika masakannya kadangkala sedap dan pada waktu lain pula ianya tidak seperti dahulul maka sukar untuk kita terus melangganinya dan dapat kita lihat bilangan pelanggan yang sukar untuk dikekalkan. Namun, setakat sekian lama kami melanggani layanan mesra Pak Ya, kami yakin untuk menepati ekspektasi kami dengan pilihan yang pelbagai dari menunya yang kemas.

Kedainya terletak di map-pakyaLorong G1 (atau Jalan Cempaka 1), Kampung Pandan Dalam, 55100 Kuala Lumpur [klik pada peta untuk panduan arah yang lebih besar]. Jika kita dari MMR2, selepas exit Jalan Ampang Putra (menghala ke Taman Dagang/Nirwana/IPD Polis Ampang Jaya) sebelum exit Pandan Jaya dan bertentangan dengan Tesco ada exit kecil (Jalan Chempaka 1). Masuk exit tersebut – terus sahaja hingga ke hujung persimpangan T, anda pasti ankan nampak kedainya. Anda boleh juga melalui dari pelbagai arah dari Kampung Pandan Dalam, Taman Chempaka atau Taman Nirwana jika diteliti peta yang disediakan ini.

Waktu operasi kedainya ialah di antara 3 petang – 1 pagi – setiap hari kecuali Rabu (selang seminggu). Anda boleh hubungi Pak Ya terus untuk sebarang maklumat lanjut.

[kemaskini: Restoran Pak Ya akan berpindah ke Galaxy Ampang pada 25 September 2011]

Latest: Muslim Funeral for Michael Jackson – https://akarimomar.wordpress.com/2009/07/04/muslim-funeral-for-michael-jackson/

Imam Visits Michael Jackson’s Family to Discuss Funeral Arrangements

from: http://imamjohari.wordpress.com/2009/06/27/imam-visits-michael-jacksons-family-to-discuss-funeral-arrangements/

UPDATE: Many have asked concerning the below. I heard the report on CNN’s Wolf Blitzer’s show “The Situation Room”. He briefly mentioned it during the coverage of Michael Jackson.

Al-Hamdulillah, CNN reported that the Jackson family is meeting with an imam to make the funeral arrangements for the janazah (Muslim funeral prayer) for Michael Jackson. I pray that Allah will have mercy on his soul and grant the family some privacy as they make the plans for a Muslim funeral. I ask Muslims to reserve their judgement and pray for him and his family. Please send your condolences: http://www.legacy.com/gb2/default.aspx?bookid=5875644172354 .

I pray that Muslims will respond to this loss our brother in every loving way possible. I do not know when and were the prayers will be. I trust that the masjid that Jermaine Jackson attends will handle the prayers and preparation. The West Coast Muslims in LA and Imam Zaid Shaker or Sheikh Hamza are hopefully in the loop? May Allah help them. We have not had a major figure in the pop world pass away before Micheal Jackson. I pray that we will do our best and that Allah will have mercy.show

It has been reported that the internet was not able to cope up with the volume of traffic after words spread about the death of the King-of-Pop Michael Jackson.

Google, Twitter, AOL, AIM, Facebook, Wikipedia and many other providers were either extremely slow or came to a halt with some reporting a five-fold traffic volume during the early hours of the breaking news. Twitter went temporarily offline. Even LA Times, which was among the first to report, was swarmed and not able to cope for a while. Many others such as BBC and CNN reported the similar clog.

It wonders if there is any other person with such an impact on web as what Michael Jackson had done just as he did with his talent to the music industry.

“How many people does it take to break the Internet? On June 25, we found out it’s just one — if that one is Michael Jackson.” CNN

Jackson, 50, had been in a coma at the hospital, sources told CNN.

Brian Oxman, a Jackson family attorney, said he was told by brother Randy Jackson that Michael Jackson collapsed at his home in west Los Angeles, California, Thursday morning.

Family members were told of the situation and were either at the hospital or en route, Oxman said.

Fire Capt. Steve Ruda told CNN a 911 call came in from a west Los Angeles residence at 12:21 p.m.

Ruda said Jackson was treated and transferred to the UCLA Medical Center.

Asked specifics of the patient’s condition, he said he could not discuss them because of federal privacy laws.

The music icon from Gary, Indiana, is known as the “King of Pop.” Jackson had many No. 1 hits and his “Thriller” is the best-selling album of all time. Video Jackson “as big as it gets” »

Jackson is the seventh of nine children in a well-known musical family. He has three children, Prince Michael I, Paris and Prince Michael II.

At the medical center, every entrance to the emergency room was blocked by security guards. Even hospital staffers were not permitted to enter. A few people stood inside the waiting area, some of them crying.

A large crowd was also gathering outside the hospital, according to video footage.

Outside Jackson’s Bel Air home, police arrived on motorcycles. The road in front of the home was closed in an attempt to hold traffic back, but several people were gathered outside the home.

Most of the world’s undernourished live in developing countries

One billion people throughout the world suffer from hunger, a figure which has increased by 100 million because of the global financial crisis, says the UN.

The UN’s Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) said the figure was a record high.

Persistently high food prices have also contributed to the hunger crisis.

The director general of the FAO said the level of hunger, one-sixth of the world’s population, posed a “serious risk” to world peace and security.

The UN said almost all of the world’s undernourished live in developing countries, with the most, some 642 million people, living in the Asia-Pacific region.

In sub-Saharan Africa, the next worst-hit region, the figure stands at 265 million.

Just 15 million people are left hungry in the developed world.

“The silent hunger crisis – affecting one-sixth of all of humanity – poses a serious risk for world peace and security,” said Jacques Diouf.

“We urgently need to forge a broad consensus on the total and rapid eradication of hunger in the world and to take the necessary actions.”

‘Contradiction’

The increase in the number of hungry people was blamed on lower incomes and increased unemployment, which in turn reduced access to food by the poor, the UN agency said.

But it contrasted sharply with evidence that much of the developed world is richer than ever before.

WORLD HUNGER
Asia-Pacific: 642m
Sub-Saharan Africa: 265m
Latin America and Caribbean: 53m
Middle East and North Africa: 42m
Developed world: 15m
Source: FAO

“It’s the first time in human history that we have so many hungry people in the world,” said FAO spokesman Kostas Stamoulis, director of the organisation’s development department.

“And that’s a contradiction, because a lot of the world is very rich despite the economic crisis.”

Mr Diouf urged governments to provide development and economic assistance to boost agriculture, particularly by smallholder farmers.

“Investment in agriculture must be increased because for the majority of poor countries a healthy agricultural sector is essential to overcome poverty and hunger and is a pre-requisite for overall economic growth,” he said.

Urban suffering

The UK’s international development ministry (Dfid) said the figures were “a scandal” and said it was helping some of the poorest farmers in the world to boost the amount of food they produce.

“In the last year we have pledged more than £900 million to lift millions out of hunger to help farmers boost agriculture production,” a Dfid spokesman said.

The UN warns that poor people living in cities will probably face the most severe problems in coping with the global recession, because lower export demand and reduced foreign investment are likely to hit urban jobs harder.

Many migrants to urban areas would be likely to return to rural areas, it added, transferring the burden.

Incomes have also dropped “substantially” in some developing countries where families depend on remittances from relatives working abroad.

With the financial crisis hitting all parts of the world more or less simultaneously, developing countries have less room to adjust, the UN agency says.

Food prices

Among the pressures is the reality that borrowing from international capital markets is “more limited” in a global crisis, the FAO said.

Food costs in developing countries now seem more expensive, despite prices in world markets declining during the food and fuel crisis of 2006-08, it added.

They remained on average 24% higher in real terms by the end of 2008 compared to 2006.

“For poor consumers, who spend up to 60% of their incomes on staple foods, this means a strong reduction in their effective purchasing power,” the FAO said.

Cuti sekolah baru-baru telah memberi kesempatan untuk saya berjumpa dengan Cikgu Mohd @ Omar Abdul Rahman (Cikgu Mat Omar). Cikgu Mat Omar pernah menjadi Penolong Kanan untuk tempoh yang agak lama dalam tahun 70an-80an. Saya difahamkan beliau kemudian pernah juga menjadi pengetua maktab perguruan sebelum bersara.

12062009(149)

Ketika menghadiri kenduri “sambut menantu” seorang kenalan, saya sengaja pergi pada masa rombongan pengantin tiba untuk bertemu dengan bekas guru SS yang tidak pernah mengajar saya namun saya rapat dengan beliau.

Sebagai Penolong Kanan, Cikgu Mat Omar menyelia Lembaga Pengawas. Beliau terkenal dengan ketegasannya walaupun orangnya bertubuh kecil.

Namun sebab utama saya rapat dengan beliau ialah kerana saya kerap menumpang beliau untuk ke sekolah pada tahun-tahun 1975-1976. Setiap pagi saya akan keluar rumah dari berek kerajaan Lorong Mok Pe (Jalan Tekukur) membonceng motorsikal ayahanda saya. Disebabkan ayahanda saya mengajar di SK Tepoh pada ketika itu – arah yang bertentang serta jarak yang agak jauh, maka saya akan turun di persimpangan Jalan Mengadang Akar (Jalan Sultan Omar) dengan Jalan Kamaruddin – depan Sekolah Agama Khairiah.

Cikgu Mat Omar memerhatikan anak ke 5nya menyuap cucu beliau yang teringin sangat merasa kelazatan jamuan di meja pengantin

Saya akan menunggu sesiapa yang saya kenali yang melalui jalan tersebut untuk ke sekolah. Terdapat beberapa guru lain yang kerap mengambil saya selain dari Cik Mat Omar. Antaranya ialah Cikgu Mohd Radai Omar dan Cikgu Wan Hassan bin Abu Bakar. Namun oleh kerana Cikgu Mat Omar antara yang awal ke sekolah, maka beliaulah yang lebih kerap saya sempat tumpang.

Selain guru, ramai juga kawan-kawan lain yang sering berhenti mengambil saya di persimpangan tersebut untuk ke sekolah.

12062009(155)Perjumpaan dengan Cikgu Mat Omar amat dirasai kerana sudah sekian lama saya ingin berjumpa dengan beliau namun tidak pernah menjadi. Ditambah pula beliau tidak lagi tinggal di rumahnya di Losong yang saya ketahui dahulu. Maka jemputan dari kenalan yang berkahwin dengan anka kelima Cikgu Mat Omar saya ambil kesempatan sepenuhnya. Malah, saya turut mengambil peluang ini untuk melayan beliau ketika makan di meja pengantin. Bila lagi hendak ditaburkan khidmat kembali kepada guru kita?

Dalam usianya begini, Cikgu Mat Omar yang kini tinggal di Wakaf Beruas, masih kelihatan segak dan bergaya seperti dulu. Cuma yang kurangnya sekarang ialah tiada lagi misai garangnya dahulu.

DO TAKE EXTRA CARE everybody!

A (H1N1): First locally-transmitted case confirmed (Update)

PUTRAJAYA: A 17-year-old girl admitted to the Kuala Lumpur Hospital has been identified as the first locally transmitted A(H1N1) case in Malaysia.

Health Ministry director-general Tan Sri Dr Ismail Merican said authorities identified the case as due to local transmission after finding out that the teenager had not visited any of the countries where a flu pandemic had been declared.

He said the girl went to the Universiti Malaya Medical Centre (UMMC) at about 10am on Monday to seek treatment after developing a fever and was later sent to the Kuala Lumpur Hospital.

“Investigations revealed that the girl, who is the 19th confirmed A (H1N1) case in Malaysia, had contact with the 12th case that was confirmed on June 13,” he said in statement issued Wednesday.

Dr Ismail said the girl was not placed under quarantine earlier as she was not one of those identified as having had contact with the 12th patient — as a result, 20 others have been exposed to the virus.

He said it was vital that all those confirmed as having the A (H1N1) flu give their fullest cooperation by providing complete information on all those who had contact with them as this was the only way to avoid local transmission.

“Action can be taken under the Disease Prevention and Control Act 1988 if they fail to provide complete information to us,” he said.

Dr Ismail said that another four confirmed cases were also reported in the 24 hours up to 9am Wednesday, including a 23-year-old local university student who was part of a group of 12 students and lecturers that went on a seven-day visit to Australia on June 7.

The male student had been on the same flight as the 17th confirmed case reported on June 15, which is AirAsia X flight D7 2723 (seat 37J) that landed at the Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) at 7:15am on June 14, he said.

The student developed a fever about five hours after landing here and sought treatment at a private clinic at 9am the next day before being referred to the Tuanku Jaafar Hospital in Seremban.

He was confirmed as having the flu at 6pm on Tuesday and the Health Ministry is now tracing 37 contacts including other passengers, members of the travel group, relatives and staff at the private clinic where he first sought treatment.

Dr Ismail said the 21st confirmed case involved a 20-year-old studying in Melbourne who travelled home for the holidays on board Malaysia Airlines flight MH128 (seat 20K) that landed at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) at 6am on Tuesday.

The medical student was found to have a fever while at the KLIA and was referred to the Sungai Buloh Hospital before being confirmed for having the flu at 6:30am on Wednesday, he said.

The 22nd case, he said, involved a 54-year-old who had returned from Manila on board Malaysia Airlines flight MH 705 (seat 32H) that landed at the KLIA at 8:25am on June 12.

He had complained of cough, fever and headache last Sunday and sought treatment at a private clinic on Monday but was not referred to a hospital.

He went to the UMMC the next day and was sent by ambulance to the Kuala Lumpur Hospital where he was confirmed as suffering from the flu.

His wife and two children have been placed under home quarantine.

“In reference to the 22nd case, we want to issue a strict reminder all private clinics and hospitals to refer all patients with flu-like symptoms to designated A (H1N1) hospitals if they have recently visited countries where there has been an outbreak of the flu.

“Their failure to refer such patients to hospitals is regrettable as it creates a risk of the flu spreading through local transmission,” he said.

Dr Ismail said the last case involved a 22-year-old who had been on the same flight as the 20th case and who was admitted to the Raja Permaisuri Bainun Hospital in Ipoh on Tuesday morning.

He said with this there were currently 13 patients still being treated: Five at the Sungai Buloh Hospital in Selangor, three at Kuala Lumpur Hospital, and one each at Penang Hospital, Tunku Ampuan Afzan Hospital in Kuantan, Tuanku Jaafar Hospital in Seremban, Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Kota Kinabalu and Raja Permaisuri Bainun Hospital in Ipoh.

All of them are receiving anti-viral treatment and are in stable condition, he said.

As at 9pm on Tuesday, 139 people who had had contact with confirmed cases were under home quarantine but none showed any signs of having the flu.

Dr Ismail said the A (H1N1) Influenza Technical Committee had also issued a directive discouraging people and barring children under 12 from visiting hospitals unless they were seeking treatment.

Each patient would only be allowed to receive two visitors above the age of 12 at any time and visiting hours would also be shortened.

“All visitors to private and government hospitals will also be screened for fever,” he said.

KUALA LUMPUR: Amah wanita itu diperlakukan bagai hamba abdi sejak hampir tiga tahun apabila didera hampir setiap hari, sebelum dia nekad melarikan diri dari rumah majikannya di sebuah kondominium di Mount Kiara di sini, awal pagi semalam.

Malah, majikan terbabit didakwa tidak pernah membayar gaji walau satu sen pun sejak wanita warga Indonesia itu diambil bekerja di rumahnya, selain hanya diberikan nasi kosong tanpa lauk sebagai makanan harian.

Lebih memualkan, jika mangsa teringin sangat menjamah lauk, dia hanya dibenarkan mengambil daging babi oleh majikan tidak berhati perut itu, walaupun mengetahui pembantu rumah berkenaan beragama Islam.

Itulah antara penderitaan terpaksa ditanggung Siti Hajar, 33, yang cedera teruk hampir di seluruh anggota badan akibat disimbah air panas sebelum wanita berkenaan meloloskan diri.

Difahamkan, wanita malang terbabit yang tidak dapat menanggung azab melarikan diri dari rumah majikannya kira-kira jam 1 pagi dan bersembunyi di tepi jalan sebelum menahan sebuah teksi untuk ke Kedutaan Indonesia, di sini.

Wanita malang itu yang langsung tidak mempunyai wang bagaimanapun mendapat simpati pemandu teksi yang tidak sampai hati melihat keadaan mangsa lalu menghantarnya ke kedutaan tanpa mengenakan tambang.

Malah, mangsa turut diberikan wang saku RM10 oleh pemandu teksi terbabit yang bersimpati selepas melihat keadaannya yang sangat lemah ketika itu.

Mengulas mengenai kejadian itu, Duta Besar Indonesia di Malaysia, Tan Sri Da’i Bachtiar, berkata wanita malang terbabit tiba di perkarangan Kedutaan Indonesia kira-kira jam 8.30 pagi dan menceritakan segala penderitaan yang ditanggungnya selama ini.

“Sejurus melihat keadaan mangsa yang cedera teruk itu, pihak kedutaan kemudian membawanya ke hospital sebelum membuat laporan polis,” katanya pada sidang media di pejabatnya, petang semalam.

Menurutnya, pembantu rumah berkenaan yang berasal daripada Jawa Barat, tiba di negara ini pada 2006 dan dihantar bekerja di rumah dua majikan berlainan.

“Wanita terbabit bekerja dengan majikannya yang pertama pada 2 Julai 2006 selama empat hari dan kemudian diambil bekerja sebagai pembantu di rumah majikannya sekarang,” katanya.

Menurutnya, sejak hari itu bermulalah penderitaan yang terpaksa ditanggung wanita malang terbabit apabila dia kerap dimarahi dan dipukul hanya kerana melakukan kesalahan kecil.

“Mangsa langsung tidak dibayar gaji sejak 34 bulan lalu dan dia turut dipukul dengan objek keras jika membuat kesalahan.

“Dia yang tidak tahan lagi menanggung penderitaan akibat didera hampir setiap hari itu nekad melarikan diri semalam (kelmarin) selepas disimbah air panas oleh majikannya,” katanya.

Da’i berkata, pihak kedutaan memanggil wanita yang menjadi majikan itu untuk mengadakan perbincangan bagi menuntut tunggakan gaji pembantu rumah berkenaan yang dianggarkan bernilai RM17,000.

“Majikan itu datang ke kedutaan kira-kira jam 11 pagi tadi (semalam) dan hasil perbincangan dia mengakui mendera mangsa dan meminta maaf.

“Hampir lapan jam perbincangan dilakukan dan wanita itu kemudian ditahan polis sejurus dia keluar dari pejabat kedutaan,” katanya.

DAI BACHTIAR menunjukkan gambar Siti Hajar yang menjadi mangsa dera majikan di Kedutaan Indonesia, Jalan Tun Razak semalam.


KUALA LUMPUR – Akibat tidak tahan menanggung penderitaan menjadi mangsa dera selama 34 bulan, seorang amah nekad melarikan diri dari rumah majikannya di Jalan Kiara, Mont Kiara di sini semalam.

Mangsa Siti Hajar, 33, rakyat Indonesia meninggalkan rumah tersebut pada pukul 1 pagi dalam keadaan sehelai sepinggang sebelum menaiki teksi ke pejabat Kedutaan Indonesia di Jalan Tun Razak di sini.

Duta Besar Indonesia di Malaysia, Tan Sri Dai Bachtiar berkata, pembantu rumah berasal dari Jawa Barat itu tiba di pejabat kedutaan pada pukul 8.30 pagi bagi mendapatkan bantuan setelah mendakwa sering didera majikan wanitanya yang berusia 43 tahun.



Menurut beliau, mangsa mula bekerja di rumah majikannya seorang ibu tunggal yang mempunyai dua orang anak berumur 11 dan 13 tahun bermula pada 2 Julai 2006.

“Dalam tempoh itu, mangsa mendakwa dia sudah banyak kali disiram dengan air panas selain dipukul dengan objek keras jika melakukan kesalahan termasuk kesalahan kecil,” katanya pada sidang akhbar di pejabatnya di sini semalam.

Lebih malang lagi, katanya, sepanjang bekerja di situ mangsa yang beragama Islam mendakwa dia hanya diberi makan nasi tanpa lauk dan jika berlauk ia hanya daging babi.

Dai Bachtiar memberitahu, mangsa mendakwa wanita yang panas baran itu juga tidak pernah membayar gaji mangsa iaitu RM500 sebulan.

Katanya, mangsa yang sampai di kedutaan didapati mempunyai banyak parut selain luka baru pada muka dan hampir keseluruhan badan.

Figuring out the best cholesterol levels to aim for can be confusing. But here’s some help setting your cholesterol number targets.

It’s important to keep your cholesterol levels within healthy limits. And if you have other risk factors for developing heart disease, you need to be even more careful — especially with your low-density lipoprotein (LDL), or “bad,” cholesterol level.

Interpreting your cholesterol numbers

Cholesterol levels are measured in milligrams (mg) of cholesterol per deciliter (dL) of blood in the United States and some other countries. Canada and most European countries measure cholesterol in millimoles (mmol) per liter (L) of blood. Consider these general guidelines when you get your lipid panel (cholesterol test) results back to see if your cholesterol falls in optimal levels.

Total cholesterol
(U.S. and some other countries)
Total cholesterol*
(Canada and most of Europe)
Below 200 mg/dL Below 5.2 mmol/L Desirable
200-239 mg/dL 5.2-6.2 mmol/L Borderline high
240 mg/dL and above Above 6.2 mmol/L High
LDL cholesterol
(U.S. and some other countries)
LDL cholesterol*
(Canada and most of Europe)
Below 70 mg/dL Below 1.8 mmol/L Optimal for people at very high risk of heart disease
Below 100 mg/dL Below 2.6 mmol/L Optimal for people at risk of heart disease
100-129 mg/dL 2.6-3.3 mmol/L Near optimal
130-159 mg/dL 3.4-4.1 mmol/L Borderline high
160-189 mg/dL 4.1-4.9 mmol/L High
190 mg/dL and above Above 4.9 mmol/L Very high
HDL cholesterol
(U.S. and some other countries)
HDL cholesterol*
(Canada and most of Europe)
Below 40 mg/dL (men)
Below 50 mg/dL (women)
Below 1 mmol/L (men)
Below 1.3 mmol/L (women)
Poor
50-59 mg/dL 1.3-1.5 mmol/L Better
60 mg/dL and above Above 1.5 mmol/L Best
Triglycerides
(U.S. and some other countries)
Triglycerides*
(Canada and most of Europe)
Below 150 mg/dL Below 1.7 mmol/L Desirable
150-199 mg/dL 1.7-2.2 mmol/L Borderline high
200-499 mg/dL 2.3-5.6 mmol/L High
500 mg/dL and above Above 5.6 mmol/L Very high

*Canadian and European guidelines differ slightly from U.S. guidelines. These conversions are based on U.S. guidelines.

LDL targets differ

Because LDL cholesterol has a major association with heart disease, it’s the main focus of cholesterol-lowering treatment. But it’s not as simple as the chart may appear. Your target LDL number can vary, depending on your underlying risk of heart disease.

Most people should aim for an LDL level below 130 mg/dL (3.4 mmol/L). If you have other risk factors for heart disease, your target LDL may be below 100 mg/dL (2.6 mmol/L). If you’re at very high risk of heart disease, you may need to aim for an LDL level below 70 mg/dL (1.8 mmol/L).

So who’s considered at very high risk? If you’ve had a heart attack or if you have diabetes or carotid or peripheral vascular disease, you’re at very high risk. In addition, two or more of the following risk factors might also place you in the very high risk group:

  • Smoking
  • High blood pressure
  • Low HDL cholesterol
  • Family history of early heart disease
  • Age older than 45 if you’re a man, or older than 55 if you’re a woman
  • Elevated lipoprotein (a)

Types of cholesterol

LDL cholesterol can build up on the inside of artery walls, contributing to artery blockages that can lead to heart attacks. Higher LDL cholesterol levels mean higher risk. High-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol is known as “good” cholesterol because it helps prevent arteries from becoming clogged. Higher HDL cholesterol levels generally mean lower risk.

A blood test to check cholesterol levels — called a lipid panel or lipid profile — typically reports:

  • Total cholesterol
  • HDL cholesterol
  • LDL cholesterol
  • Triglycerides, a type of fat often increased by sweets and alcohol

For the most accurate measurements, don’t eat or drink anything (other than water) for nine to 12 hours before the blood sample is taken.
