Learn Your Numbers

Blood Pressure - These numbers measure the pressure on your arteries
as the heart muscle pumps blood. High blood pressure increases your risk for stroke, and heart and kidney disease. 
Normal Range - less than 120/80

Body Mass Index (BMI) - A measure of body fat based on height and weight. A higher BMI puts you at risk for high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and certain cancers.
Normal Range - 18.5 to 24.9

Glucose - This simple blood sugar is your body’s main energy source. A fasting blood test is vital in the early detection and treatment of diabetes, which can damage your heart, kidneys, nerves, blood vessels, or eyes.
Normal Range - 100-125 mg/dl fasting

Cholesterol and Fat - Keeping these levels in check lowers your chances of heart disease or stroke.

  • LDL - “Bad cholesterol” is more likely to clog arteries and cause heart disease.
  • HDL - “Good cholesterol” protects against dangerous blockages in the arteries that can lead to heart disease. 
  • Triglycerides are fat types that provide cells with energy to function.


Normal Ranges

Total Cholestrol: 150 - 200 mg/dL

LDL (bad): Less than 100 mg/dL

HDL (good): At least 40 mg/dL

Triglicerides: Less than 150 mg/dL
