As per the new study, it said that the there are two kinds of cholesterol. These types are called High-density Lipoprotein (HDL) and Low-density Lipoprotein (LDL). This former is said to be considered as good cholesterol as well as the latter is said to be having the bad cholesterol levels.
When anyone says about the high cholesterol levels, then they are referred to the high levels of the LDL cholesterol fats that are present inside the body. The presence of HDL cholesterol in the body is said to be considered as to be healthy as well as it helps in preventing the heart disease.
As per the researchers, they are now saying that the extremely high levels of HDL or even the good cholesterol might now be not good for the body. LDL cholesterol is said to be considered as the worst thing in the body as it has got the capability to cause the disease called as atherosclerosis. In this disease, the condition in which the results are said to be the build-up of plaque is in the arteries. The Plaque usually narrows as the arteries that increase with the risk of heart attack along with the stroke. Atherosclerosis can also get narrowed with the arteries in legs. This condition is said to be known as peripheral artery disease.
HDL cholesterol takes the LDL cholesterol away which is from the arteries as well as they move it to the liver where that is broken down as well as they passed from the body. Cholesterol is like a precursor for the steroid hormones which has got the performance of the function of the regulating body functions as well as bile acids. Both of the functions are said to be important for the process of digestion.
As per the study, which was presented at the annual conference of the European Society of Cardiology in Munich in 2018 said that the people who all are having the high level of normal levels of HDL cholesterol are said to be at risk of cardiovascular disease.
The participants who have taken part in the study shows that the HDL cholesterol levels which are above 60 mg/dl were found to be at about 50 percent increased risk of dying which is from cardiovascular disease or even heart attack. They are compared with HDL cholesterol levels which were in the range of 40 to 69 mg/dl.
