HDL stands for HIGH DENSITY LIPOPROTEIN. You want your HDL level to be HIGH. HDL is called the “good cholesterol.” HDL’s carry cholesterol out of the bloodstream to be excreted. HDL levels for men should be 40-50 mg/dl. For females, 50-60 mg/dl.
LDL stands for LOW DENSITY LIPOPROTEIN. You want your LDL level to be LOW. These lipoproteins carry cholesterol to the body’s tissues. LDL with cholesterol can accumulate inside blood vessels, causing arteriosclerosis. LDL levels should be less than 100 mg/dl.
What’s your HDL and LDL count ?
