You do not indicate what the 175 units are measured in so I can't say.

However, the amount of cholesterol present in the blood can range from 3.6 to 7.8 mmol/liter. In the UK, a level above 6 mmol/liter is considered as high, and a risk factor for arterial disease. Government advice recommends a target cholesterol level of less than 5.

Edit: JWTKINS

Unless I miss my guess, the number 175 would be mg/dl or milligrams per dekalitre. (Which is also my own last Cholesterol level and my Doctor said it was exceptional.)

The optimum cholesterol levels using this measurment are 200 or less. 175 is actually a very good number. 200-239 is considered borderline high, 240-279 High, etc., etc..

The Total Cholesterol is made up from combining the LDL-Low Density Lipoprotein(bad) and the High Density Lipoprotein(good). The bad and good forms make up about 75%/25% to 67%/33% of your totals and a too low of an HDL is jst as much of a risk factor as too high of an LDL.
