What is cholesterol? Cholesterol is explained by Dr Ergin. How does cholesterol cause heart attacks? LDLis sometimes called “bad” cholesterol. Why is high LDL so bad? Is it because high LDL or just high cholesterol levels raise your risk of atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease or heart disease? How about HDL or triglycerides? What is their role? Dr. Ergin explains how atherosclerosis and heart disease develops.
Some health care providers make decisions about how to treat hyperlipidemia based on the LDL cholesterol level only. Your goal LDL cholesterol depends on your overall risk for a cardiovascular event (heart attack or stroke). Several factors affect your personal risk, including whether you have a history of heart disease and your risk of developing atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease in the future. People at higher risk are often given a lower LDL cholesterol goal. Your HDL as well as triglycerides are very important as well.
