The level of serum phospholipids is closely related to cholesterol, and the normal human cholesterol/phospholipid ratio is 0.94 on average. Phospholipids also rise when cholesterol levels rise with age or dietary conditions. Hypercholesterolemia usually also has hyperphosphatidemia in the pathological state, but the phospholipid rises later than cholesterol, so the cholesterol/phospholipid ratio is higher than 1.0.
