Even low ldl level below 80 is not advisable. Low ldl levels impair the immune responses.

Hypolipidemia (Low cholesterol) is defined as a total cholesterol less than 120 mg/dL or LDL less than 50 mg/dL. In your case, LDL cholesterol is not low. But your HDL cholesterol is very low. Medium HDL cholesterol level is 40 mg/dL.

Certain changes in diet and exercise may have a positive impact on raising HDL levels:

Decreased intake of simple carbohydrates.

Aerobic exercise

Weight loss

Magnesium supplements raise HDL-C.

Addition of soluble fiber to diet

Consumption of omega-3 fatty acids such as fish oil or flax oil

Consumption of pistachio nuts.

Increased intake of cis-unsaturated fats

Consumption of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) such as caproic acid, caprylic acid, capric acid, and lauric acid.

Removal of trans fatty acids from the diet

Avoid cigarette smoking.
