|Cholesterol travels in the blood in packages called lipoproteins. Low Density Lipoproteins (LDL) are the 'bad' cholesterol since they carry most of the cholesterol in the blood which is the main source of buildup that damages and blocks the arteries. The more LDL-cholesterol you have, the greater the risk of
CHD. If your LDL is higher than 130mg/dl, your cholesterol is probably too high.
High Density Lipoproteins (HDLs) are the 'good' cholesterol, as they carry cholesterol in the blood from other parts in the body to the liver, which leads to removal of cholesterol from the body. HDLs help cholesterol from building up in the arterial walls.
If your level of HDL-cholesterol is below 35mg/dl, you are at risk for CHD. The higher your HDL-cholesterol the better. The average HDL-cholesterol for men is about 45 mg/dl, and for women 55 mg/dl.
Triglycerides are a form of fat carried in the bloodstream. Most of your body's fat in the form of triglycerides is stored in fat tissue. Only a small segment of triglycerides is in the bloodstream. High triglyceride levels alone do not cause atherosclerosis. However, lipoproteins that are rich in triglycerides also contain cholesterol, which causes atherosclerosis in some people with high triglycerides.
What are the factors that make cholesterol high or low?
Heredity plays a large role in determining your LDL –cholesterol levels. One form of inherited high cholesterol affects 1 in 500 people. It is called familial hyercholesterolemia, and often leads to early CHD.
