What is the difference between good and bad cholesterol

You are here:
← All Topics

HDL (high density lipoprotein) cholesterol is known as “good” cholesterol. HDL takes the “bad,” LDL (low density lipoprotein) cholesterol out of your blood and keeps it from building up in your arteries. LDL cholesterol is known as bad cholesterol because it leads to the development and build up of plaque on the walls of your arteries. That increase your chances of getting cardiovascular disease. When being tested for cholesterol, make sure you get numbers of total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol and LDL cholesterol.
